Worker loses an arm in industrial construction accident

Many construction workers in Georgia and elsewhere use heavy duty machines to assist with operations every day. When operating a machine such as an auger, workers must use caution to avoid being caught up in the machines, as similar incidents can have disastrous results. A 44-year-old man has lost an arm during a recent construction accident in which he got tangled up with an auger drill.

While wet conditions can have a substantial impact on ground stability, rainy weather might not always keep a construction project from proceeding. Should the ground collapse and trap a worker, wet conditions may only make it more difficult for emergency responders in Georgia to perform a timely rescue. A recent construction accident involving similar conditions has left a 42-year-old man with injuries.

Workplace accident claims life of 24-year-old man

The fear of being pinned to the ground by heavy equipment is a concern that is shared by workers in a variety of fields in Georgia and elsewhere. Incidents of this nature can pose a major threat to a person's health, even if other workers are quick to respond to rescue the individual. A 24-year-old man has died during a recent workplace accident involving similar circumstances.

Seeking advice on reducing the odds of workplace accidents

Many companies in Georgia and elsewhere are constantly working on new ways to promote workplace safety and reduce the chances a disastrous incident will occur. While preventing all workplace accidents may be a challenging endeavor, it is also a goal that companies and employees should strive to achieve. Fortunately, there are certain workplace safety tips that may help workers become better informed on how to reduce the odds of a potentially devastating accident.

Man trapped within trench during construction accident

While working on a new housing development project, employees of construction companies in Georgia and elsewhere may find it helpful to be aware of the dangers of unstable ground. A collapse in the surrounding area could leave a worker trapped within a trench, and the nature of the instability could make it challenging for others to rescue the individual. A man in another state was trapped inside a 7-foot deep trench after a dirt wall collapsed during a recent construction accident.

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.

Workers' compensation: Man struck and killed by falling objects

Falling objects are a major concern for individuals in Georgia and elsewhere who operate within a variety of professions. Similar incidents can be catastrophic, and in some cases, such an accident may even prove fatal. Those who lose someone close in a fatal workplace accident could be entitled to financial aid through the workers' compensation insurance system. The family of a 53-year-old man could be in search of such relief after he was struck and killed by falling objects during a recent incident in another state.
