Workers who are employed on construction projects of any kind will face certain risks in the job that can lead to accidents and injuries. This is true whether it is the act of building, repairing or anything else in which large tools, heavy equipment, complicated machinery and more is needed to complete the job.
A specific danger is when there are flammable materials and people are working with fire-producing equipment. An explosion and burns can occur and these can cause scarring, long-term damage and death. Fortunately, when these accidents happen, workers' compensation benefits are available. It is important to know how to pursue and receive these benefits.
