Inadequate Safety at Construction Sites
When a construction site accident occurs, a variety of parties may be responsible for inadequate safety provisions. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires general contractors and subcontractors to provide a reasonably safe site, inspect and warn of hazards inherent to the site, hire careful employees, coordinate job safety, and supervise compliance with safety regulations. Companies should be held accountable when OSHA violations lead to serious injuries.

- Electrical accidents, fires, and explosions
- Forklift accidents
- Welding accidents
