Construction Accidents Can Happen to Anyone

construction accidentsWhether you are working on your home yourself or hiring a contractor, construction accidents can happen to anyone. Construction is the second most dangerous occupation next to agriculture, with 1200 fatalities a year. One third of those are related to falling. Materials and people falling from a third story are traveling at 30 miles per hour by the time they reach the ground. Although it’s possible to survive a fall from great heights, it’s not always guaranteed, and survival can mean a lower quality of life depending on what got injured in the fall.

So how do you prevent this from happening to you? Learning safety before you take on a job, and always practicing what you learned is key to keeping your body healthy and whole. Ladder safety, including knowing the best angle to set your ladder, the correct length of ladder for the job, avoiding contact with electrical wires while setting ladders and materials, all of these are important. Once you are up on the roof, shoes that provide a firm grip help you stay where you belong. Be aware of your surroundings as you move around so that you keep your orientation to what is level so you don’t fall.

The safest thing is to hire a roofer to take on tasks like repairs or roof replacement. Even with a simple one story home, experience helps prevent accidents. When you hire a contractor, verify their insurance is in place so that construction accidents that happen are covered.

The most common type of roofing accident for roofers is getting on and off of a roof.
