The construction industry in The United States holds alot of similarities to work here in Australia, which is why I found it interesting that their 10 most common construction hazards are so alike ours but also different in many ways.

According to the post the most common workplace accidents are linked to

  1. Altercations at work
  2. Colliding with objects
  3. Slips, trips and falls
  4. Muscle strains
  5. Exposure to loud noise
  6. Being hit by falling objects
  7. Crashes and collisions
  8. Repetitive strain injury
  9. Cuts and lacerations
  10. Inhaling toxic fumes.
