- Guide to Preventing Arizona Construction Site Accidents
Construction site accidents occur at an alarming rate, and while many people will focus on which party or parties to attempt to hold responsible for injuries that occur as a result of these construction site accidents, others want to focus on what could help prevent this problem from continuing to spiral out of control. Of course, if you or someone you love has been harmed on an Arizona construction site accident, you need the help of an experienced Phoenix construction accident lawyer, but in the meantime, below are some ideas for how to minimize these accidents in the future.
Arizona Construction Site Accidents – Existing Problems
According to OSHA, the United States Occupational Safety & Health Administration, the following issues represent the most common causes of construction site accidents:
- Fall protection (scope, application, definitions)
- Excavations (general requirements)
- Head protection
- Excavations (requirements for protective systems)
- Hazard communication
- Fall protection (training requirements)
- Construction (general safety and health provisions)
- Electrical (wiring methods, design and protection)
Unfortunately, this list basically covers every aspect of construction work, which means that it would be difficult to identify a finite list of steps that could be taken that would substantially affect the number of construction site accidents.
Arizona Construction Site Accidents – Suggestions for Safety
However, the wide array of safety issues identified by the government does not eliminate the possibility that certain steps could be taken to improve matters. Below are a few examples of these steps:
- Training – Employers should spare no expense in making workers aware of the risks they face and how to avoid them.
- Self-generated inspections – Employers could save themselves much in the way of liability simply by taking extra steps to inspect construction sites in order to eliminate obvious problems.
- Incentives – Employers could also help improve safety by putting incentives in place that reward safe work.
- Review – Construction sites could be greatly aided by having independent professionals review a construction site in order to identify potential risks.
Of course, there are any number of other steps that could be taken to help minimize AZ construction site accidents. Hopefully more of these steps will be taken, but if you or someone you love has been harmed in such an accident, you need to contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers at Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Phillips Law Group has a proven track record of success. Juan Roque, in particular, is integral to that. He works with integrity, compassion, and an undefeated optimism that makes him a valuable asset.
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
I would like to send special thanks to Phillips Law Group for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the Best Law Firm here in the Valley. During these troubling times with the epidemic, Phillips Law Group has masterfully created this family-like environment while still maintaining a professional and business-like approach for all their clients. Thru impeccable leadership that is unmatched by other law firms to the Multi-diverse employment opportunities that many employees advance within the firm; Phillips Law Group has not only distanced themselves from all other competition in the Personal Injury field but also has innovatively changed the narrative of being a great law institution. From providing Employee Appreciation Day to celebrating all major Holiday including great competitive contests; Phillips Law Group has the total participation of all employees to help contribute to the continued success of this firm. So in closing I would like to thank Senior Administration (Jeffery Phillips, Eva Chiaramonte, and Tim Tonkin) along with all of my colleagues and many friends for help making Phillips Law Group a unique and wonderful place to call my place of employment for 6+ years.
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
