Pre Settlement Funding For Your Scaffolding Accident
Construction sites are generally not safe places. They are home to many tools, toxins, and materials that can severely injure someone. But it’s not just the materials lying around that can be a danger; the structure itself can also be hazardous.
One aspect of a construction site that is extremely risky is the scaffolding. These are platforms that workers use in order to climb the full height of the building. Scaffolding is, by its very nature, temporary and doesn’t exactly create a secure working environment.
The Risk of Scaffolding Accidents
According to OSHA, of the 9,750 annual scaffolding-related injuries suffered in the U.S. each year, 72% are due to these three causes:
- the support or platform planks giving way
- the employee slipping
- the employee getting hit by an object
If a worksite follows the rules and regulations for scaffolding safety set by OSHA, then all of these incidents could be prevented.
Over 2 million construction workers rely on scaffolds frequently in their work. When these employees are not properly trained and the scaffolding is not erected according to set regulations, construction workers are exposed to numerous hazards.
