Out of the 5000 workers who die on-the-job each year, construction leads all industries in total worker deaths . And from the looks of things, there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. In fact, of the 4 industries with the highest fatality rates, construction is the only one where things are actually getting worse, with a 10% fatality increase YoY.
Still, today’s construction projects are getting bigger and bolder. More risks are being taken, more hazards are popping up, and more people are getting hurt, sick, and even dying.
So why is this happening?
