Construction sites pose many dangers to workers and others in the area. Workers often must lift heavy objects, operate large machinery, and perform job duties at elevated heights. Workers trust in the safety of the equipment they use and in the soundness of construction design plans. When either of these is defective, people’s lives and well being are at stake.
