Risks Faced by Construction Workers
Occupational hazards associated with the construction industry include, but are not limited to:
- Chemical / electrical burns
- Falling heavy objects
- Crane accidents
- Machinery malfunction
- Exposure to harmful chemicals such as asbestos
- Explosions / fires
- Falls from scaffolding
Numerous state and federal laws are designed to protect workers. At the national level, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) details safety regulations that must be observed by employers in the United States.
When injured by a General Contractor, Sub Contractor or other person who is not your direct employer, Oregon’s Employer Liability Law and Safe Employment Act give you, as an injured worker, rights beyond just workers’ compensation.
