Hundreds of construction workers are injured or killed on the job every year. According to the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration, 820 employees died due to construction accidents in 2009.
Most construction site accidents are preventable. According to the OSHA Act, construction companies are required to take precautions to ensure worker safety. Failure to keep a working environment safe constitutes negligence.
