Accidents Involving Falling or Swinging Objects

One of the top causes of construction-related deaths is being struck by falling or swinging objects. These types of accidents usually happen when construction workers are working, standing or walking underneath scaffolds, cranes or other elevated surfaces or when objects are being moved overhead. During construction large, heavy or sharp items are constantly being moved, carried or lifted and pose as a threat for any person handling the objects or for anyone in close proximity to the construction site. Additionally, such accidents take place because many construction activities such as the use of power tools, drilling, prying, grinding, pushing and pulling cause objects to swing or become airborne. The resulting injuries are often fatal or debilitating.

How to prevent accidents involving falling or swinging objects:

These accidents can often be prevented by taking certain precautions including: staying away from hovering loads and making sure that materials are stored, secured, and lifted in a proper manner. Being cautious, staying aware of your surroundings, wearing the right protective gear and following all proper safety measures can also help lessen the risk of construction-related deaths or injuries.
