Types of Construction Accidents
Despite taking the proper precautions, such as wearing adequate safety equipment and closely following the safety procedures, construction accidents still occur regularly.

Common types of construction accidents include:
- Chemical spills

- Compressed gas accidents
- Construction vehicle accidents
- Crane accidents
- Electrical injuries
- Falling debris or equipment
- Falls from ladders
- Scaffolding accidents
- Slips and falls
