27 years of experience, expertise and results
Scaffolding is a temporary platform constructed in order to reach high places to complete the construction, maintenance, or repair of a building. When it comes to a Phoenix scaffolding accident injury, Arizona sets certain safety laws designed to prevent such a tragedy. These laws are regulated by the Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Among other precautions, Arizona OSHA often requires workers to have scaffolding training and certification. Arizona OSHA also specifies the types of material that can be used to construct the scaffolding, such as certain kinds of lumber, if not steel. Based on the design of the scaffolding, weight limitations may apply, and regular checks to ensure the structure is in good condition are mandatory.
A Phoenix scaffolding accident lawsuit and injury can almost always be avoided when construction sites are in compliance with OSHA regulations. When they are not, the general contractor and subcontractors on the job site may be held liable for injuries to workers. It requires an understanding of the Arizona OSHA code and frequently a construction accident expert to determine who was responsible for erecting and maintaining the scaffolding under Arizona OSHA standards.
SOME COMMON SCAFFOLDING INJURIES
Scaffolding accidents account for roughly 50 construction site deaths and 4,500 injuries annually. These scaffolding accidents cause physical and emotional damage (often permanent) and devastating financial harm.
