On June 2, 2014, the AGC of Middle Tennessee will be partnering with other construction trade associations across the state, Tennessee OSHA Outreach Training Centers, as well as TOSHA to have a statewide construction “Fall Protection Safety Stand Down.” As you may be aware, fall construction accidents are one of OSHA’s Focus Four Hazards.
On the heels of the announcement of the Safety Stand Down event, I recently received an email from a colleague at Viewpoint, who recently analyzed the construction industry’s safety statistics over the past decade. While I rarely publish unsolicited guest posts, every now and then I find a golden nugget either submitted by another industry expert or company.
The infographic below breaks down the most common injuries in construction, work fatalities in each construction type, how construction’s fatalities compare to other industry numbers, and construction fatalities by state.
