Ohio construction collapse injures three workers

Earlier this month, three workers in Woodville Township, Ohio, were injured after a rebar concrete form they were working on collapsed. The construction accident was serious enough that two of the workers required helicopter transportation to the University of Toledo Medical Center and Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. The third injured worker was hospitalized with less serious injuries after being transported via ambulance.

Ohio construction accident leaves man severely injured

When a worker is injured on the job, one of the first things to consider, after the pain of the injury itself, is whether to file for workers' compensation. A man who recently suffered injuries in a construction accident in Lisbon, Ohio, may now be wondering the same thing.

Many construction deaths could be avoided with driver diligence

Unfortunately, many construction workers are injured and killed in Ohio and across the country each year. Some advocate groups have asked drivers to pay more attention when they are passing through a construction zone, hoping to lower the risk of construction accidents occurring for workers who spend their time repairing and rebuilding roads.

Ohio officers working to reduce accidents in construction zones

The stretch of Interstate 75 that runs through Butler and Warren counties in Ohio is becoming notorious for slow traffic due to accidents. The Ohio State Highway Patrol has reported that, on average, in 2010 there were almost 2.5 wrecks every day on that stretch of road, which is only 19 miles long.

Ohio implementing new measures to minimize construction accidents

As motorists, we might get frustrated when we approach construction zones. The lanes narrow, and if the pavement has been repainted, it can be difficult to differentiate between your lane from the lanes next to you. Perhaps the most frustrating part of Columbus construction zones are the delays they cause in traffic.

Ohio trench collapses; worker barely escapes in time

When construction work involves a great deal of digging, employers are required to follow a number of safety precautions. If a trench is greater than five feet deep, OSHA requirements mandate reinforcement to help prevent the ground from caving in.

Road construction worker injuries can be prevented

There is an old saying in Ohio that we have two seasons: winter and construction. Now that Columbus and the rest of Ohio is seeing warmer weather, construction season is in full swing and the amount of orange barrels and construction workers on Ohio roads is on the rise.

Road construction zones in Ohio cause fatal accidents for workers

It is a well-known fact that construction is one of the most dangerous occupations. Construction workers who work on Ohio's roads and highways may face even more injuries than those who work on buildings.
