Clean up after yourself. Be careful of others. Take care of your things. These seem like lessons we all learn early in our childhood, but they are sometimes forgotten or disregarded on construction sites. Construction contractors or employers who fail to maintain their equipment, who fail to adhere to OSHA standards, or who fail to promptly remove debris from a construction site can cause serious New Jersey construction site debris accidents, such as those described below.

Debris on the Ground
Tools, construction materials and building pieces that are left on the ground can quickly become hazards on a busy construction site. As construction workers concentrate on their jobs and quickly move around a cluttered construction site, they can trip and fall on debris and suffer significant injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries and, spinal cord injuries.

Debris From Above
The threat isn't only from what is on the ground, however. The danger also comes from above.

Construction workers who are working on ladders, scaffolding or cranes can allow debris to fall from their work spot, and workers on the ground can be seriously injured. The force of the debris hitting a worker can cause a traumatic brain injury or other serious injury.
