Construction Site Injuries
During the construction of a new home or office, the future occupant of the building being completed may choose to visit the work site to ensure that all of the requirements of the building are being met. This can include walking through partially constructed buildings to inspect insulation choices, framing, and even roofing if there have been special requests. While this ensures a happy customer at the end of the process, it leaves the individual open to a wide variety of injuries associated with a building.
Depending on the stage of construction when the site is visited, the injuries possible vary. At the later stages, it is more likely that an individual inspecting the property will trip over carpeting being installed or something similar. Earlier in the process, particularly when the building is nothing but framing, the future occupant may step on a nail, hit his or her head, fall through an open window, or be injured in any number of ways.
When individuals “snoop” through incomplete construction projects, they are also likely to be injured. Those that snoop are almost more likely to be injured as they are not on construction sites on a daily basis and are also most likely not taking a guided tour conducted by the general contractor or construction manager. The same injuries that can befall the future occupant can hurt snoopers.
