Understanding the "Fatal Four" in Construction Accidents

Construction can be an inherently dangerous industry to work in, and employers that put workers in potentially hazardous situations should take every precaution to protect them from being injured or killed while doing their jobs. However, throughout the nation and right here in California, construction workers suffer harm from four types of accidents: falls, electrocutions, getting caught between walls and machines, and being struck by objects. These four types of incidents are known as the Fatal Four in the construction industry and account for more than half of all construction site deaths each year.

Three workers hurt in California construction accident

There are many construction projects underway throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and residents of San Mateo may see new developments popping up as they commute through Northern California. Just across the water, a large construction project is in the works in Freemont that drivers can see from Interstate 680. Unfortunately, however, that project was also the location of a dangerous accident that caused three workers to suffer injuries.
