Common Causes of a Scaffolding Accident
- Falling debris- many scaffolding workers can injury by being hit by falling objects that are used within the work project and cause severe injury to an individual working on a scaffolding work site. It does not necessarily have to be debris that causes the accident. Equipment if not used correctly can also fall created potential danger for a scaffolding worker below the object.
- Falling from the Scaffolding- falling from the scaffolding is a risk that many workers face. When safety procedures are not followed correctly it could result in workers falling or being knocked off the scaffolding. It is important for workers to make sure that safety harnesses are used and that ladders are properly secured. Additionally, improper training is another reason that contributes to scaffolding accidents occurring.
- Incorrectly assembled scaffolding construction- Failure to properly assemble the scaffolding can result in scaffolding collapse or injury due to improper construction. If the scaffolding collapses it can injury scaffolding workers who have the potential of being trapped by the scaffolding, falling from the scaffolding, or being crushed underneath the scaffolding.
