How Falling Object Accidents Occur
Falling objects on construction sites are not always the fault of employee carelessness. In many cases, it is the direct or indirect result of a failure by an employer, contractor or another party. In addition, an employee may have also been working with equipment or objects that do not meet federal safety standards.
Common causes of falling objects on a construction site include:
- Construction hazards
- General contractor errors
- Subcontractor mistakes
- Property owner negligence
- Employee carelessness
- OSHA standard violations
- Inclement weather
- Poor lighting
- Inadequate safety training or no safety training
