Workers trapped in mud survive construction accident in Maryland

When you go to work at a construction site in Maryland, the last thing you probably think will happen is a construction accident. Minor safety hazards can result in major events, and all workers need to be educated in how to stay safe. If your life has been put in danger because of lax rules or dangerous workplaces, you may have a right to seek compensation for your lost wages, pain and suffering, and injuries.

Construction accidents focused on by agency

If you could go back and make sure your workplace was safer before you were injured, you would. Since you can't, seeking compensation and changes in rules at work may be all you can do to prevent further injuries. Agencies for workplace safety know what you've gone through, though, and they want to lower the amount of construction accidents. A July 13 report about several injuries that took place in Pittsburgh might have been able to have been prevented with help from the Occupational Safety and Heath Administration that is soon to come.

2 men dangle from ropes in construction site accident

This accident could have turned out much worse if not for the firefighters on the scene. A news release from June 4 reports that a pair of masonries had to be rescued from a building on the National Institutes of Health Campus when a scaffolding platform the pair was using collapsed. The construction accident resulted in the workers falling and dangling from the platform, struggling nearly 80 feet in the air.

Baltimore contractor fined over 2013 mall construction accident

People in the Baltimore area likely remember an accident at the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda that killed one worker and injured another. The construction site accident took place during a renovation to the mall, in which a cinema complex is being built. A concrete slab weighing more than 21 tons fell inside a parking garage, and now the contractor responsible is being held accountable.

Carpenter killed in accident on slippery construction site

It's been a little over a month since we last wrote about construction accidents. In our November 1 post, we took note of evidence that immigrant workers tend to be affected at disproportionate rates by fatal workplace accidents.

Fatal construction accidents: are immigrants more at risk?

Issues relating to the eligibility for workers' compensation of construction employees who are injured in on-the-job accidents are one of the themes of this blog. In our September 20 post, for example, we discussed the lag in compliance with fall protection standards among many construction employers.

Fall protection in residential construction: compliance lags

Last week we looked at a specific construction accident that resulted in a worker fatality in Maryland. This week, let's look more closely at the issue of efforts to improve fall protections across the country.

The long, hot summer: heat-related injuries and deaths at work

At the beginning of summer, we wrote about the risk of heat-related injuries and illnesses to workers. As we discussed in our June 14 post, accidents and injuries on the job caused by excessive heat harm far too many workers every year.

Growth in Maryland's construction industry could fuel accidents

The construction industry is known for the accident risk workers face on the job every day. Working from a considerable height or near heavy machinery obviously can be dangerous, and these are commonplace occurrences at many construction sites. When workers are injured in the normal course of work duties, they're typically covered by workers' compensation insurance.
