Each day in the U.S workers are injured while on duty. Unfortunately, the number of injuries and deaths is far higher for those working in the construction industry.
In fact, in 2008, the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics stated that the construction industry has the second highest number of fatalities of all industries in the U.S. The study also revealed that construction workers have a higher-than-average number of days off from work because of illness or injury. Other studies have indicated that one out of every ten construction workers will be injured on the job at some point during their career.
