Falling Objects: One of Construction’s “Fatal Four”

Falling objects are one of the four leading causes of worker fatalities in the construction injury, dubbed one of construction’s “fatal four” by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Injuries caused by falling debris are preventable if safety standards are upheld at construction sites and other workplaces.

NIOSH offers the following tips to avoid falling object injuries:

  • Do not hoist loads so they pass over workers or other people.
  • Properly secure loads that are being transported or lifted by forklifts.
  • Wear hard hats at construction sites and other worksites.
  • Place toe boards on all scaffolding to prevent tools or other objects from falling on workers below.
  • Secure tools in elevated working areas so they cannot fall.

A Los Angeles workers’ comp lawyer at Reed & Garcia Law, P.C. can help you with a claim involving falling debris caused by safety violations, negligence, or other wrongdoing. One of the advantages of workers’ compensation claims is that you do not have to prove negligence in order to secure benefits, but we may be able to file a personal injury claim if a third party (not your employer) was to blame.

To discuss your right to benefits after suffering injuries from falling debris, call (310) 340-1090.
