Ladder safety: Accidents and the reasons they happen

Ladder safety is an important element in any workplace. Whether you're using them regularly or only on occasion, knowing the right way to use a ladder is key to staying safe. Some common reasons ladder injuries take place include losing your balance, overreaching, mis-stepping, and mounting or dismounting improperly. If you're not trained to use a ladder properly, it can lead to accidents and injuries that you may have to seek workers' compensation for.

Are you following these ladder safety tips at work?

If you use a ladder on a regular basis, either at work or at home, you need to understand what it means to remain safe at all times. It only takes one small mistake to result in a fall that could cause serious injury or even death.

Scaffolding: A common danger on construction sites

One of the top reasons reported for construction site injuries is worker falls, and that's not surprising given the amount of time employees on such sites spend on unlevel surfaces and scaffolding. Estimates from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration say that as many as 65 percent of employees in the industry work regularly on scaffolding.

You can seek compensation after an electrocution injury

Power lines are dangerous to work with, and everyone who has ever worked around them knows this fact. There are safety regulations in place to prevent workers from being injured or even killed due to contacting overhead lines with metal ladders. Doing this can cause electricity to course through the ladder, electrocuting everyone it comes into contact with.

Common causes of construction injuries

If you work in the construction industry, you probably realize that an injury could happen at any time. You don't want to think about this, but it is better to be prepared for every possible situation. This will put you in the best position to avoid trouble down the road.

You take the right steps to prevent injuries; you wear reflective gear, a hard hat, and mark where you are with cones and possibly even flashing arrows on large vehicles. Despite all these precautions, it's still possible to be hit by a negligent driver while you work on a highway or busy traffic zone.
