Common Causes Of Construction Falls

Falls from ladders, scaffolds and other locations are common on construction sites. Quite frequently they result from negligence on the part of a contractor or scaffold company or else the failure of the construction company to follow safety procedures.

Some of the most common causes of construction site falls include:

  • Improper use of ladders and scaffolds
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Absence of guardrails
  • Faulty stairways
  • Lack of safety treading
  • Failure to use harnesses and other safety equipment
  • Faulty or nonexistent barriers around construction trenches
  • Improper safety training and failure to implement safety procedures
