Helping Honeoye Falls Recover For Injuries Caused By Falling Objects Or Debris

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), roughly 1 out of 10 deadly construction injuries involves a worker being hit by a falling object of some kind.

Even a bolt can cause a serious head injury if dropped from high above.

Common Reasons For Dropped Objects On Construction Sites

There are many reasons why objects fall. The most common causes include:

  • Incorrectly loaded cranes, hoists or material lifts
  • Collapsing scaffolds and other structures
  • Broken cables
  • Loose concrete and masonry
  • Unsecured tools and flying debris from tools

Pedestrians Near Construction Sites Are Also At Risk

Construction site workers aren’t the only people in danger of falling objects. Sometimes, innocent New York pedestrians are harmed due to:

  • Construction work happening too close to public sidewalks
  • Lack of barricades, gates and locks to keep the public from wandering onto the site
  • Lack of hard hats and other protective equipment when they are invited to visit the site
