Indianapolis Construction Site Accidents
According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), in the United States, there are reportedly more than 250,000 construction sites being worked by almost 6.5 million American workers per day. In an average year, construction site accidents result in the deaths of over 700 workers. In Indiana, 4.6 workers per every 100 are injured or killed on construction sites throughout the state.
Construction sites are incredibly dangerous workplaces. They involve the use of heavy machinery, large vehicles, power tools, scaffolding and other high surfaces, and loud noises that often make communication difficult. In these environments, injury can happen even when the highest safety precautions are taken.
