The “Fatal Four” Causes of Death in Construction Industry

  1. Falls
  2. Struck by Object
  3. Electrocutions
  4. Caught-In/Between

The Fatal Four are responsible for more than half of construction worker deaths in 2012. If you were injured while working at a construction site, and your employer violated OSHA safety standards, you may be entitled to compensation.
