Trenches and excavations can be dangerous for workers

Construction site accidents can be a major source of workplace injuries for workers in New Jersey. One particular source of an increasing number of serious injuries and even fatalities is work in trenches and excavations. These underground cuts and caverns can involve removing tons of earth in order to create passageways for the laying of building foundations, creating piping or electrical lines and other important construction tasks. However, due to the sheer weight of earth removed and the subsequent risk of cave-ins, collapses, falls and other accidents, trenches and excavations can be dangerous places for workers.

Safety risks abound on construction sites

The construction industry is an incredibly important industry, but just because it is vital, vibrant and financially successful does not mean it is without it's faults. The most prominent of these faults is the safety of workers in the construction industry. It may be an inherent part of the construction process, but nonetheless, the people who work on construction sites are almost always in a dangerous situation -- even when nothing goes wrong.
