Out of the possible accidents that may take place at a construction site, falls are most common and may be lethal for the victim. If a construction worker falls from a roof while working, the individual may incur superficial injuries like cuts, more serious injuries like a broken back, or even fatalities. In some cases, the construction site may be unsafe due to improperly maintained facilities or a lack of safeguards in place.
