CONSTRUCTION SAFETY

Over the past 10 years the number of fatal work injuries in construction has dropped.  There were 759 fatal work injuries among specialty trade contractors in 2004, but that number was below 500 from 2009 to 2012. In the entire industry, there were 5764 fatal injuries in 2004, compared to 4383 in 2012.  Texas had the highest number of construction-related injuries followed closely by california.  Of course that is also where the most jobs and the most workers are.

Those in the heavy construction industry should be aware and beware of the four types of injuries in construction that accounted for three out of five construction worker deaths in 2012. They are falls, 36 percent; struck by object 10 percent; electrocutions 9 percent and caught-in/between 2 percent. If your occupation deals with any of these risks, it’s extremely important to heed safety precautions. Even if one is following code, there remains the risk for fatal injury or death.
