Construction accident at football stadium results in fatality

There are many potential risks that can arise in connection to construction work. For example, construction workers sometimes end up working in locations that pose falling risks, such as tall structures with significant openings.

Construction worker drowns in pipe during downpour

Construction work can present numerous dangers and risk to workers' lives. From deadly falls from roofs and scaffolding, to being electrocuted, to being buried in a trench or run over by heavy equipment, workers must be constantly on guard to prevent work place accidents and injuries that can result in the need to file a workers' compensation claim.

Family of crane accident victim settles for $1 million

Rolling the die with your life

Humans, it turns out, are not very good at calculating probability. Witness the success of Las Vegas or Atlantic City. Or lottery jackpots approaching half a billion dollars. It is a 1000 time more likely that you will be struck by lightning than ever win a large lottery jackpot. Or killed on a jobsite. If you work in construction, you may recognize how dangerous some jobs are. You hope someone else does, too.

New Jersey worksite receives $130,500 in OSHA fines

U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited two New Jersey companies for willful and repeat trenching hazards on a jobsite in New Jersey. The complaint dates from November 2012 and was the result of an "imminent danger complaint." This type of a complaint allows OSHA to inspect a worksite immediately if the working conditions are such that they could reasonably be expected to cause death or serious physical harm immediately or before the danger can be eliminated by normal enforcement proceedings.
