Workers’ Compensation for Construction Workers in California

While any occupation poses certain risks, the construction industry is notoriously dangerous. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), construction workers comprised approximately 20 percent of all worker fatalities in private industry occupations in 2019. This means that, of the more than 5,000 worker deaths in the U.S. in 2019, one in five was a construction worker. In California, most construction workers are entitled to workers’ compensation. If you were injured on the job or suffered a work-related medical condition, you are likely eligible for benefits. The California workers’ compensation system also provides benefits to surviving spouses, partners, children, and other relatives of those involved in fatal workplace accidents.

Common Causes of Construction Site Injuries

Known as the “fatal four,” the following are the top causes of serious and fatal injury on construction sites:

  • Falls
  • Being struck by a falling or moving object
  • Being caught in or between moving objects/parts
  • Electrocution

While these represent the biggest risks to construction workers, they are not the only causes of serious work-related accidents, injuries, and deaths in the construction industry.

OSHA reports that the most frequently cited OSHA standard violations for the fiscal year 2020 in construction included:

  • Fall protection/fall protection training requirements
  • Hazard communication
  • Respiratory protection
  • General scaffolding requirements
  • Ladders
  • Hazardous energy control
  • Powered industrial trucks
  • Eye and face protection
  • Machinery and machine guarding
These and other safety standard violations can have devastating—or even deadly—effects. When workers are seriously injured or killed on the job, they or their families have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits, including medical payments, temporary disabilitylong-term benefitsexpense reimbursement, and more.
