Construction Accidents

Reconstruction and technical interpretation of incidents on construction sites that result in personal injury or damage to equipment or property

Construction sites are dynamic environments characterized by constant change. The very nature of the environment places people at risk for injury, and equipment and property at risk for damage. Should injury or damage occur, there arises a need to determine the cause, and to determine who or what is responsible. Determination of cause also contributes to avoidance of repeat occurrences and project delays.

Considerations:

  • Personal injury
  • OSHA 1926
  • Work practices
  • Safety programs
  • Standard of care
  • Proper use of equipment
  • Applicable codes
  • Human error
  • Failure analysis
