- Work Injuries
As a construction worker who builds and repairs roads and bridges, you know that your job is full of inherent dangers. In addition, your dangerous job may be even more dangerous due to the negligence of your employer or site foreman. Among the dangers specific to road construction workers are:
- Passing cars and trucks
- Construction machinery
- Falls from a height
- Electrical accident
- Exposure to dangerous chemicals and substances
- Environmental hazards
These work site hazards are present at nearly all road construction sites, however in Texas your risk might be greater than workers in other states. Between the years 1995 and 2002, over 70 road construction workers were killed in Texas; that’s 20 more than any other state.
