Construction sites are known to be some of the most dangerous workplaces. As a construction worker, your job likely requires you to work on ladders, scaffolds, roofs, and other structures that put you high above the ground. These elevated work areas can expose workers to a higher risk for falls from heights, which can lead to serious injuries and disabilities. From broken bones and fractures to devastating brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries, falls from heights can result in crippling medical bills and lost wages ― not to mention pain and suffering for the worker and their family alike.
