Which types of construction jobs are the most dangerous?

If you think cranes, scaffolding and heavy equipment have seemingly been everywhere recently, you’re not imagining it. According to a report from ABC 15, the construction industry in the Phoenix area has been booming. From March 2018-19, the Phoenix area added just under 14,000 construction jobs – and didn’t even fill all openings.

Scaffolding remains a major safety hazard in construction

Workers on construction sites in Arizona face an endless list of safety hazards, regardless of the project on which they are working. Safety authorities say that scaffolding violations lead to a significant percentage of all citations issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Research has also shown that the costs related to scaffolding injuries average over $45,000 each.

A torn rotator cuff can cause significant pain and discomfort

Workers in Arizona whose jobs require frequent lifting of heavy objects can suffer shoulder and back injuries with long-term consequences. One of the most painful of these injuries is a torn rotator cuff. The shoulder is a highly complex joint, and few people stop to think about the wide range of movements this joint allows until they suffer such an injury.
