  • Exposure to toxic substances or chemicals
  • Inadequate warnings
  • Defective products such as ladders, power equipment, scaffolding, etc.
  • Trips and falls due to uncovered holes, exposed rebar, etc.
  • Violations of safety regulations
  • Lack of proper safety equipment
  • Improper training
  • Improper supervision
  • Careless storage of materials, debris or equipment
  • Fires and explosions
  • Inadequate lighting
