Roofing Accident and Construction Falls Attorney

Leading Falls-from-Height Lawyer Based in Philadelphia

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cites falls as the leading cause of deaths in the construction industry. While it is one of the most preventable accidents on the jobsite, fall hazards continue to be present on job sites, and workers’ safety is constantly being put at risk. If you’re working at a height of four feet, you’re at risk for an accident, and OSHA requires fall protection to be provided at six feet in the construction industry (or any time you’re working over equipment or machinery). When your safety is not prioritized, and you are injured on the job due to a fall, you need our fall hazard attorneys at your side.

What Are the 3 Major Types of Fall Hazards in Construction?

There are a wide variety of fall hazards at a roofing project or construction site, but OSHA identifies 3 major types of fall hazards in construction. They are:

  1. Unprotected roof edges, roof and floor openings, structural steel and leading edges;
  2. Improper scaffold construction; and
  3. Unsafe portable ladders.
