Construction Accident Attorneys and Work Injury Lawyers – Holding Employers Responsible
Slip and fall accidents injure or kill Indiana construction workers every year. OSHA studies show that every year there are approximately 100,000 injuries and 150 deaths at construction sites as a result of falls. Under OSHA and IOSHA regulations, it is the employer’s responsibility to make certain that fall protection systems are in place before actual construction work begins.
Construction Falls: Fall Protection and Fall Arrest
These OSHA mandated safety measures allow Indiana construction workers to concentrate on their job, rather than operating in an environment of fear and danger. Fall protection is generally divided into two categories:
Basically, fall prevention is designed to prevent falls from happening in the first place. Many times employers don’t follow these OSHA regulations, and the lack of fall protection can lead to devastating injury, paralysis, or death.
Fall arrest systems prevent Indiana construction workers from landing in a manner that would result in injury or death. Again, employers many times take shortcuts or fail to follow OSHA and IOSHA regulations, leading to life changing consequences.
