Scaffolding can be scary: Workers hurt in construction accident

All jobs come with their own dangers and risks. Some, however, are more inherently hazardous for workers than others. Construction and industrial work are fields that commonly produce serious workplace accidents. Often, these accidents could have been prevented if proper safety standards were in place and/or followed.

A recent scaffolding accident in Huntsville, Alabama proves how dangerous construction work can be. Scaffoldings are notorious for causing work injuries and injuries to unsuspecting pedestrians. In this most recent Alabama case, three construction workers were hurt while on the job.

According to sources, the three construction workers were working at a high school on a project. The construction work, as it often does, involved the use of scaffolding - which can make for a dangerous scene. In this case, two workers were on the scaffolding when it collapsed and fell, and it landed on another worker below.
