Worker killed in construction site accident on campus

While all occupations in Pennsylvania and across the country hold some degree of risk of injury due to a work-related accident, many workplace accidents happen at construction sites. Because workers often work at great heights and use heavy equipment, they face significant harm. Unfortunately, reports indicate that a worker was recently killed in a construction site accident on a campus in another state.

Workplace accidents: 1 killed in TV tower collapse

While many people in Pennsylvania report to the same building for work every day, others report to different sites depending on the nature of their current project. This can be challenging as different conditions could have a variety of impacts on the overall safety of work being completed and the potential for workplace accidents. Unfortunately, a man in another state was recently killed while a crew worked on a television tower.

Workplace accidents: Don't take risks in an unprotected trench

One of the most dangerous areas on any construction site is an excavation or trench. Pennsylvania construction workers have the right to refuse to enter an unprotected trench. Trench collapses are workplace accidents in which victims have little chance of surviving. When a trench wall collapses every cubic yard of soil that falls on a worker weighs about the same as a small car -- approximately 3,000 pounds.

Man injured on the job due to chemical burns

Any job that involves chemicals can have serious risks associated with it even if a Pennsylvania worker is only transporting the chemical. Certain chemicals can cause serious harm if a person comes into contact with the actual substance or even the fumes. Unfortunately, a man in another state was recently injured on the job while unloading a truck.
