No matter the kind of construction site: residential, commercial, industrial or public works, these are dangerous places to work. Injuries at job sites are all too common a problem for people working in the trades.
Deaths at construction sites, while rare, are not unknown in the construction industry. Some of the most frequent injuries resulting in workers’ compensation claims involve back injuries. Falls, impact with objects, heavy lifting and the repetitive stresses of construction work can lead to spinal injuries such as disc herniation, compression fractures, sprains, strains, sciatica and other back problems.
Orthopedic injuries including fractures, damaged ligaments, carpal tunnel syndrome and crush injuries are also part
of the risks facing construction workers. Let’s face it: any kind of injury you can imagine has probably happened at a construction site.
