Types of Construction Injury
Working on a building site or industrial area obviously comes with an element of risk. And, while you may be equipped with the best personal protection equipment available, injuries upon your person may still occur. With crane operators – and those in the vicinity – the level of risk is enhanced due to the nature of the machinery being used. For example, some of the most common types of crane-related accidents include:
The crane coming into contact with power lines overhead
Errors in the assembly and rigging of the crane
Objects falling from the crane
Collisions with other structures
Collapse of cranes
Inclement weather conditions causing operational issues
With so many crane-related accidents possible, and the level of severity high, it pays for employers to offer a degree of protection and insurance for those working on site. In the event that such an accident occurs and an injury is sustained, it becomes important that you are afforded the compensation you deserve.
