- 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.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
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.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
