Common Causes for Falling Debris
New York construction workers and bystanders are especially at risk of
being struck by debris falling from elevated heights. Below are the most
common examples of how workers get injured by falling debris.
Inadequate Barriers – Construction sites are required to construct walls around the
perimeter of their work area to prevent injury. As New York is a walking
city, construction companies are forced to factor in the constant foot
traffic around their building site. Often barricades are insufficiently
placed and do not allow a large enough radius to protect bystanders from
falling debris such as screws, nails, power tools and various other materials.
Improperly Maintained Equipment –Construction site managers are responsible for conducting regular
inspections of all machinery, cranes, hooks, ties, and hoists. If these
inspections are missed, building materials become old and weak and may
break causing debris to fall.
Improperly Secured Equipment & Tools – When projects are begun, workers are required to have proper training regarding
the work they perform. Part of that training includes OSHA safety training.
Tools are one of the most common falling items as workers frequently move
around the worksite and forget to properly secure their tools.
