Top 16 Construction Site Hazards
Construction has the highest fatality rate of any other occupation in the United States. This graphic clearly shows some of the top hazards. These hazards include unsafe working at height, unsafe electrical connections, and issues with machinery such as forklifts and cranes.
This graphic comes from a Gulf News, which is based Abu Dhabi, but the information applicable to many construction sites. The California Department of Public Health also provides fact sheets and resources for common construction accidents. Thanks to our partners at the UCLA Labor Occupational Safety and Health (LOSH) program for the resources.
