Scaffolding Accident Statistics
U.S. Department of Labor statistics state that scaffolding accidents injure about 5,000 people and kill more than 60 every year. Many cases involve violations of OSHA safety standards, for example, absence of proper guardrails or ladders, inadequately trained crew, the usage of damaged or weakened scaffolding, and excessive loads. If workers are not warned about the dangers of aluminum scaffolding, this can lead to severe burn injuries or even death from contact with power lines.
