A busy construction siteConstruction is known to be one of the most dangerous occupations.  Unfortunately, some employers tend to prioritize completing projects on time and push workers to complete jobs in a hurry. In many cases, they end up compromising on costs and their workers’ safety.

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), 20% or 1,061 worker fatalities in the private industry were construction workers. Most accidents result from some form of negligence like unsafe worksite conditions, improper tools, and lack of protection.
