Heavy machinery on jobsites poses risks to construction workers and jobsite visitors every day. In addition to the risks of machinery rollovers, workers face the risk of being pinned under or crushed between heavy machinery and other equipment, or between heavy machinery and large beams. Sadly, these accidents often result in catastrophic injuries and death. Safety precautions exist for all jobsites and for heavy machinery itself, but accidents still happen. Often, the construction company or safety training provider is liable for these accidents and any resulting injuries due to negligence.

Jobsite safety is predominately structured by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA has a “Fatal Four” – a list of the most common and hazardous workplace injuries to avoid. Caught-in-between injuries fall into one of those four categories of injuries. These injuries result when a person becomes crushed and/or trapped between heavy equipment and other equipment or an immobile object. Broadly, these incidents can occur between any two large objects on a jobsite. They are included in the Fatal Four because, sadly, these accidents often result in debilitating injury or even death.
Life can quickly become overwhelming when tragedy occurs on the jobsite. You may be dealing with your own severe injuries, or the injuries or death of a loved one. The stress involved can be a lot for people who are also concerned about their physical and/or financial well-being.
