According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 18.5% of all workplace deaths in the United States occur in the construction industry (that’s more than in any other industry). OSHA categorizes the top four causes of death in the construction industry as “the fatal four” because together, they account for 57% of all construction industry deaths.
The fatal four categories are:
- struck by object
- caught in/between
There were 4,628 workers were killed on the job in 2012.
There were 37, 476 injuries in work zones in 2010. This equates to one work zone injury every 14 minutes (96 per day), or about 4 people injured every hour.
