Falling items are also a significant danger on a construction site. These objects can be beams, chains, metal plates, pieces of equipment, bricks, wood, or any other type of building material.

Falling objects usually cause serious injury due to the speed and weight of the objects involved. Further, it is difficult to prevent serious injury from a falling object, as generally, the falling object will strike someone on or near the head. This can cause concussions, brain injury, or death.
