The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), reports out of 4,379 worker fatalities in the private industry in 2015, there were 937 or 21.4% in the construction industry alone. That means one in five worker deaths last year were reported to be at the construction facilities. The leading cause of private sector worker deaths in the construction industry were falls, followed by struck by object, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for more than half, 64.2%, of the construction worker deaths in 2015, based on a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Eliminating the “Fatal Four” would save 602 workers’ lives in America every year.
