Tunnel Explosions & Collapses
A tunnel is one of the most hazardous construction sites to work in. Tunnel construction is extremely dangerous not only due to the risk of tunnel collapse, but a host of other threats as well. Common accidents include:
- Accidents resulting from the use of explosives
- Explosions from natural gas accumulation
- Illness resulting from exposure to pressure from compressed air, dust, and other contaminants.
OSHA has adopted rules and regulations which must be followed during the course and scope of tunnel construction and work. Virtually, all tunnel accidents and explosions result by a failure of the contractors to comply with the OSHA regulations relating to tunnel construction.
