One minute, you’re laying a course of shingles or clapboard the next you’re on your back in terrible pain looking up at the broken pump jacks that used to be supporting you. When you work construction for a living, your life can turn literally upside down in an instant because someone didn’t take the proper safety precautions or abide by the safety protocols established by OSHA. Construction job sites are complex and dangerous places.

 

Construction’s “Fatal Four”

Out of 4,101* worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2013, 828 or 20.2% were in construction―that is, one in five worker deaths in 2013 were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by being struck by objects, electrocution, and being caught in/between. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for more than half (57.7%) of the construction worker deaths in 2013*, BLS reports. Eliminating the Fatal Four would save 478 workers’ lives in America every year.
