Construction Accident Statistics Show Decrease In Fatalities
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, fatalities in construction are greater than in any other industry sector. In 2007, there were 1,178 fatal injuries in the construction sector. There were also over 135,000 injuries reported in the construction industry. Although it is believed that fatalities and injuries are fewer in the more recent years, this is most likely due to a slow-down in construction as opposed to greater safety in the industry.
