Construction sites rely on a number of tools that have the potential to create explosions and serious burns. Additionally, construction sites incorporate or work around potentially flammable or volatile risks. Some of the hazards that can lead to explosions or fires on a construction site include:
All of these factors work together to create a risk that needs to be taken seriously. A backhoe may strike an unmarked gas pipeline. A welding torch may ignite gas from a leaking propane tank.
Burn injuries are incredibly damaging and require specialized medical care. Serious burns can create ongoing health issues for years to come. Scarring and disfigurement can impact a person’s emotional health and self esteem. Plastic surgery may be required to help an injured person reclaim the life he or she led before the accident.
