Every day, construction professionals are faced with immense pressure to meet (or even beat) deadlines and stay on budget. Unfortunately, this can put construction site safety on the back burner. In recent years, working on a construction site has become one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. 1 in 5 workplace fatalities in the private sector occurs in construction sites: the highest across all industries. These fatalities fall under four major categories: falls, falling objects, electrocution, and being caught in or between machinery.
While the nature of construction work makes it inherently hazardous, certain oversights among construction companies and job site managers can make construction sites unnecessarily more dangerous.
