This means that of 4,693 fatalities, 991 worked in the construction industry. When an accident happens at a work site, employers must be held accountable for the negligence that causes accidents.

The Fatal Four: Proof Construction's Dangers

According to OSHA, 1 out of every 5 worker fatalities are in the construction industry.

Construction deaths could be drastically reduced by focusing on a set of accidents known as the “Fatal Four.” Identified as causing 63.7% of construction worker deaths, the Fatal Four reveal key issues with safety at construction sites.

The Fatal Four includes the following events:

  • Falls: In 2016, 384 people died from falling in construction. Falling is the most common fatal accident at construction jobs. Falling may happen from scaffolding, ladders, deep ditches, and high platforms that are not protected with guardrails.
  • Electrocution: As construction workers deal with high voltage wiring, they are frequently exposed to the dangers of electrocution. Unsafe practices with electrical wiring and components may lead to burn injuries or death in moments.
  • Struck by Object: Building materials and heavy machinery pose a serious threat to those working with and around them. Construction workers who are struck by the heavy objects used commonly in the industry often suffer from severe injuries.
  • Caught In or Between – The same machinery mentioned above pose a threat of pinning or crushing workers. Causes of these incidents involve operating machinery as wells as being crushed by walls, scaffolding, or other large structures.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

Those who have been hurt in a construction accident may be entitled to receive workers’ compensation. Though the law surrounding it may be complex, workers’ compensation is one of the most effective ways to start your recovery after a construction accident. However, workers must be vigilant in reporting an incident when it happens.

An employee has 120 days to file a claim after they have been injured. Notably, it does not matter how an injury occurs while on the job—it only matters that the injury occurred while working for the company the claim is being filed against. It is incredibly important to inform an employer immediately after an accident. Doing this will create a record of when the accident happened and helps to prove your injuries occurred while working.
