Not many people know this, but the harmless dumpster that you walk past in any major city street can present a veritable hazard risk to individuals that work in construction. Dumpsters are used to store waste in order for the same to be cleared by getting picked up at a later date. The amount of building that occurs in construction sites means that many cement bags, wood and other materials need to be disposed of after they have served their purpose. In addition, if the area has a building that needs to be demolished, these dumpsters will fill up pretty fast with pieces of concrete that may have paint which could possibly contain lead, and the environment itself may have toxic waste that is not supposed to come into contact with humans or inhaled. It is because of this that dumpster injuries are common in construction sites, and occupation exposure to hazardous substances at construction sites may occur in a manner that is insidious, causing illness many years later. If you are a construction worker that was injured due to a dumpster and its contents, you may be able to substantial financial compensation, and we’re here to help with that.

Disposing of Hazardous Waste in Construction Sites
It is important to note that according to OSHA work safety regulations, hazardous waste at construction sites must be deposited in a specific manner, following a protocol that ensures that no humans are harmed. What’s more is the fact that some of this hazardous waste is highly flammable, exposing workers nearby to the risk of explosion. Lead may become vaporized and workers may inhale the same, which can cause cognitive difficulties and systemic poisoning over time.
