In 2012, 4,383 workers were killed on the job in construction accidents (3.2 per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers) – on average, more than 84 a week or nearly 12 deaths every day. Sadly, no construction accident expert can help them now. Out of 3,945 worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2012, 775 or 19.6% were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by struck by object, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for nearly three out of five (56%). (OSHA, ClickSafety.com)
