Construction sites are inherently dangerous. Between heavy machinery, unstable scaffolding and falling debris, there is plenty of opportunity for someone to become injured. However, just because conditions are not ideal does not mean it is acceptable for a worker or passerby to become hurt.
Construction companies are responsible for ensuring that their employees and those who may walk by a construction site are safe. This includes ensuring that equipment is properly maintained and that all employees have undergone the proper training to know how to handle themselves in situations that could pose a risk. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
