Even With Safety Measures, Construction Sites Can Cause Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous. Even those individuals who take safety precautions can become injured at a construction site. There are regulations in place that require inspections and safety measures to keep workers or others who may be injured at a construction site, safe. Despite these laws and regulations, thousands of workers are injured each year.
