Infographic on the “Fatal Four” of Construction Accidents, by Viewpoint

Infographic on the "Fatal Four" Construction Injuries, by Maxwell ConstructionThe construction industry has seen worker deaths drop almost two-thirds since 1970, according to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). However, it’s still the deadliest private industry in the U. S., with 775 on-the-job deaths in 2012. What’s more, OSHA says that over half of those deaths were caused by just four types of accidents: falls, electrocutions, and getting caught between or struck by objects. Preventing this “fatal four” of accidents can save over 400 lives a year.
