1 dies in construction accident involving mechanical failure

Many construction companies in Georgia and elsewhere use heavy duty machines to assist with daily operations. These machines may require frequent maintenance to ensure they remain in proper working condition and reduce the odds that a malfunction will occur, as faulty equipment could pose a major threat to workplace safety. Unfortunately, a 55-year-old man has died in a recent construction accident in another state involving an apparent mechanical failure.

1 suffers critical injuries in recent construction accident

While construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere may face various hazards on a job site, falling objects remain a major concern for many workers. Sharp or heavy objects can pose a significant threat to a person's safety, and the injuries such an incident could cause might leave a worker facing a long recovery period and extensive medical expenses. Three workers were injured after a tower of rebar collapsed in a recent construction accident in another state.

1 suffers head injury in fall-related workplace accident

Falls from heights are one of the most common hazards that a construction worker in Georgia may face while on the job site. Even a fall from a lesser distance can cause broken bones and joint pain, and the consequences of a fall become greater as the height of a fall increases. A construction worker in another state has suffered a major head injury after he reportedly fell nearly 25 feet in a recent workplace accident.

Workers' compensation: 2 die after machine hits power lines

Construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere may face a variety of risks every day. Working with heavy duty machines and from heights can be dangerous under any circumstance, especially when operating near active power lines, as incidents involving electrocution run the risk of proving fatal. Those who lose a family member in a fatal workplace accident could be eligible to receive financial relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, but the process can be intimidating.

Repeated actions increase the risk of repetitive stress injuries

There may be many individuals in Georgia who work at jobs that make it necessary to perform the same actions over and over every day. While some may take comfort in the routine this may provide, those who operate in similar professions may also be at higher risk of suffering repetitive stress injuries. While many of these injuries may be treatable conditions, they could still render a person incapable of performing job-related tasks, even if only temporarily.
