Construction workers make up about 6% of the labor force and 20% of the workplace fatalities. Despite all the advances in construction safety equipment and technology, the construction industry continues to face high rates of fatal and nonfatal injuries and accidents among its workers. In fact, it is the third highest rate of any industry.
The construction industry accounts for 6% of all injuries that result in lost days of work. Construction workers ages 25-34 were most likely to sustain an injury on the job, and the total workplace injury costs exceed $170 billion each year in construction alone.
