Types of Falling Objects on Construction Sites
Examples of falling objects on job sites may include tools, construction materials, flying debris from power tools and structural collapses as well as heavy equipment loads that fall. Falling objects are just some of the most common types of construction accidents. These accidents often then lead to traumatic brain injuries, lacerations and other severe injuries.
