Construction zones have varied statistics, but as there is plenty of roadwork always happening in Ohio, it's good to have a gauge of how many injuries and deaths really take place each year. Construction zone accidents are possible any time there is roadwork going on. The danger comes from vehicles passing through these areas while workers are using dangerous and hazardous materials.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has several safety checklists that must be followed in different areas of construction and industry. Personal Protective Equipment may be required, and there are several reasons why.
If you're hurt at work or have lost a loved one due to a workplace accident, then you may be familiar with the legal process that surrounds the case. In a wrongful death case, you may be able to seek compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, and other things, and workers' compensation should be available to you, like it should have been to this family of a man who was killed when inspecting roadway construction.
