Construction accidents are common due to the manual work involved in difficult situations but one of the common causes of construction accidents on a job site is due to the malfunctioning of ladder and scaffolding systems.
Collapses and other safety issues surrounding the scaffolding or ladders set up on the job site are one of the leading causes of construction-related injuries and death. Collapses that lead to injury and death are caused when systems are not set up correctly or there is a lack of attention to safety details involved with working on such structures.
