Many California construction workers are involved in erecting and installing both interior and exterior walls as a routine part of their jobs. Unfortunately, numerous accidents occur every year when workers fall while doing so.
Although nail guns are both easy to use and help increase job productivity, they pose special hazards to workers due to the velocity of the nail's discharge from the gun. Workers should thus be aware of the risks involved with nail guns and to take steps in order to minimize their risks of injury.
It took more than two hours for emergency crews to free a construction worker trapped in a concrete pipe in California. The incident occurred shortly before 9:30 a.m. on Nov. 8 when a construction worker was performing some type of work in an underground pipe. Emergency personnel were not clear as to how the man became stuck in the pipe, but the original call that came in was for a person trapped in a confined space near the area of Starlight Avenue and Oak Valley Parkway.
