Despite continued efforts to improve health and safety in the workplace, the vast majority of accidents still occur in workplaces or on the roads. Sadly, the construction industry remains one of the most dangerous workplaces with some injuries being exceptionally common.

In the last year, there were 35 fatal injuries to workers in construction, 22% lower than the five year average. However, workplace accidents on construction sites are still exceptionally common. We take a look at some of the most common injuries and what you can do if you are involved in such an accident.

Common Types of Accidents: Construction Sites

Falls from height remain one of the most common injury types. Naturally construction workers need to work at great heights, however, a number of employers fail to provide proper safety equipment resulting in serious injury.

Slips and falls are also exceptionally common due to the nature of the industry. However, with many hazards on a construction site, there are a number of factors that could result in injury from a slip, trip or fall.

Misuse of equipment can also play a factor in workers obtaining injuries with many workers failing to have proper health and safety equipment or proper training when using machinery resulting in an injury.
