Falls Drive Up Construction Workers’ Comp Costs

More than 30% of workers’ compensation claims stem from construction sites are the results of falls from elevated surfaces according to Nationwide Mutual Insurance.

Falls from elevated surfaces are more severe than other injury claims because these accidents result in more time away from work, damage to multiple part parts, and more short- and long-term disability leave.  

To assist you and your workers in fall prevention, you can download the Fall Protection in Construction Flyer.
