Common types of construction accidents for bystanders
The types of construction accidents that most commonly occur to bystanders are not always the same as accidents that occur to construction workers. Here are just a few examples:
Struck by a vehicle: There are many different types of vehicles that constantly go in and out of construction sites, from cranes to bulldozers and dump trucks and so much more. This means entrances and exits to construction sites could be a potential hazard for bystandards.
Falling objects: Cranes, tools, scaffolding and other objects on tops of buildings and beams can cause severe injuries or death if not properly secured.
Ruptured eardrums: Construction sites can be extremely loud, and ruptured eardrums can occur in circumstances when a person is exposed to loud noise pollution.
Hazardous materials: Workers at construction sites are responsible for handling hazardous materials and chemicals safely, keeping them away from the general public. If hazardous materials or smoke are not properly handled, bystanders could become ill or sustain injuries.
Slip and fall accidents: Tools, debris or equipment can be tripping hazards, and can cause a host of injuries, including breaks, sprains and brain injuries.
