Construction sites are rife with potentially fatal hazards. This is one reason why OSHA and other governing bodies are so strict when it comes to enforcing jobsite safety regulations – reducing construction site accidents is of great importance.
Unfortunately, many construction zone managers and third-party companies who work onsite overlook workplace safety laws. This often leads to serious and potentially deadly injuries to workers and innocent bystanders.
The construction industry is responsible for 20 percent of all on-the-job fatalities in the United States. In other cases, injuries lead to permanent disabilities and prevent victims from returning to work.
