Construction accidents on the road: how many deaths and injuries?

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.

How can safety be improved for construction workers in Ohio?

Construction workers are exposed to hazards every day, but would it surprise you to know that some of the injuries and deaths that have happened were from simple falls or equipment collapsing? These are things that safety manuals talk about, but safety isn't always enforced.

Workplace accident ruled accidental on Ohio River

This boat crash that took place on the Ohio River has been reported as being a workplace accident, but the employees hurt may still need to be treated for their injuries. If you're in an accident like this, despite no one being at fault, you are able to seek compensation through worker's compensation. Workplace accidents caused by safety issues or poor regulations should be discussed with someone who can help you get the compensation you deserve.
