The "Fatal Four" Accidents on Construction Sites

As a construction worker, you are undoubtedly aware of the intense and extreme dangers you are facing every day while on the job. Sometimes, construction site accidents result in fatalities, which is tragic for all involved. The worst part of construction site accidents is their preventability--often, had the right steps been taken, no injuries would have occurred in the first place, which is why it is necessary a thorough investigation takes place. While accidents can happen as a result of any number of things, some accidents are more prevalent than others, otherwise known as the “fatal four.” These are the 4 most common types of fatal construction site accidents.

The following are known as the “fatal four” accidents for construction workers, according to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration:

  • Falls
  • Electrocutions
  • Being struck by an object
  • Being caught in between objects

When these accidents occur, the responsibility and liability can be placed on a number of parties. These include the construction companies for failing to provide safe equipment or perform proper safety inspections. Liability can also be placed on contractors or subcontractors, as well as manufacturers or material suppliers.
