Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/25/2016 -- In a recent article released via his website, Darwin F. Johnson, a lawyer specializing workers' compensation in the Athens, GA area, warned construction workers to be especially careful at their job sites nowadays. According to Johnson, the general boom in need for construction is leading to shady practices by many builders, who are neglecting safety protocols for their workers to get jobs completed faster, with higher profit margins.
Darwin F. Johnson offered construction workers a few tips on how they can maintain safety on their jobs. Firstly, he said that equipment operators must climb into and out of machines extremely carefully, because during those times they are most prone to injuries. They should always wear gripped gloves, look out for slippery situations and use both hands when climbing, said Johnson. They should not carry objects into their machines with them.
Construction workers should also avoid highly active areas where which their presence is not imperative. For example, during breaks, workers should stay away from areas that include being near heavy machinery, or within the swing radius of cranes.
Furthermore, workers should be wary of faulty scaffolding. According to Johnson, "falls from scaffolding are too common." Mishaps can occur when scaffolds bear too much weight, are attached to loose objects, and do not have their proper railings installed.
Johnson mentioned several other tips in the article, which can be viewed on his website. Construction workers seeking the counsel of work injury lawyers in the Athens, GA area can visit Darwin F. Johnson's website, or call 404-692-6482 to schedule a complimentary consultation.
