With so many people working at various levels on a construction site, falling objects can cause severe injuries and can even result in fatalities.

Types of Falling Object Accidents
In many falling object accidents at construction sites, employers or supervisors have attempted to claim that they are expected dangers due to the “hard hat area” warning signs. An accident that is commonly occurring is never acceptable and only underlines a drastic requirement for safety improvement at the worksite.
Common types of falling object accidents include:
- Dropped equipment and tools
- Collapsed scaffolds
- Ceiling or roof collapse
- Falling construction debris
- Tipped ladders
- Workers falling onto each other
