Lax safety standards and sloppy work sites can lead to falling debris and serious injuries. Several factors might contribute to falling debris, including:
- Unsecured tools
- Faulty floor boards
- Unsecured materials, such as bricks, stored at height
- Defective or inadequate railings
- Tools or materials stored on scaffolding
- Removal of safety features
- Inadequate fall protection
These objects can cause serious injuries to whatever part of the body they strike. From the head, to the back, to the arms or legs, a falling object can cause broken bones, head trauma or severe lacerations.
