The construction industry provides good paying jobs that help to support many American families. Unfortunately, many of the construction sites in the industry fail to adhere to safety standards to protect our loved ones on the job. There are many parties who are responsible for ensuring safety standards are followed and that employees on construction sites have the safety equipment and tools that they need to do their jobs without getting injured. This includes providing proper fall protection, proper tools, eliminating dangerous conditions and adhering to safety rules. Failing to do these things can all contribute to creating hazardous conditions for construction workers on the job.
In 2014, one in five work-related deaths last year were in construction. The leading causes of these fatal injuries in the construction industry were falls, followed by electrocution, being struck by objects, and caught-in/between (This category includes construction workers killed when caught-in or compressed by equipment or objects, and struck, caught, or crushed in collapsing structure, equipment, or material).

- Electrocutions – 74 (8.2%)
- Struck by Object – 73 (8.1%)
- Caught-in/between* – 39 (4.3%)
