The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is dedicated to assuring the health and safety of America’s workers. Through the years, OSHA has instituted a number of standards designed to improve the safety of construction sites.
However, certain occupations remain more dangerous than others. The Department of Labor estimates that 1 out of 10 construction workers is accidentally injured each year. According to statistics published by the National Safety Council, thousands of construction workers suffer disabling injuries each year. Many of these injuries are preventable.
