Ceiling Tile Failure and Wall Tile Failure
Construction work involving ceiling or wall tiles is dangerous because it entails performance of overhead work and falling objects. Tiles can be very heavy and are sometimes even made of concrete. When workers or bystanders are struck by ceiling or wall tiles, death and serious injuries can result. Some examples of possible injuries are: brain damage, spinal injuries, full or partial paralysis, and permanent disfigurement. Treating these injuries can exhaust the finances of the injured person and his or her family, especially since many of these injuries can prevent the victim from returning back to work. An injury from ceiling or wall tiles can be devastating physically, emotionally and financially for all parties involved.How to Prevent Ceiling Tile and Wall Tile Failure and Resulting Injuries:
There are a number of safety precautions that one may take to prevent ceiling and wall tile failure and the injuries that can result. Securing the area and posting warning signs is one way to make overhead work less hazardous. Taking extra care to make sure that everything is secure is another way to prevent injuries from happening. One can also use nets or catch platforms to stop or deflect falling tiles or other materials. Using extra safety gear such as a helmet or hard hat could help prevent injury or lessen the effects if struck by a falling tile. Sometimes, however, injuries are a result of someone else’s negligence and can’t be foreseen.What to Do if Injured:
