Construction Injury Statistics

There are approximately 9.3 million workers in building, heavy, and special trades construction who are at risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries. Construction accounted for 1,178 fatal work injuries, the most of any industry sector in 2007. Of the 1,178 fatalities, 877 were laborers.

In the United States, 7% of the workforce is employed in the construction industry, yet more than 21% of workplace fatalities take place in the construction industry. In addition to fatal injuries, workers in these industries are at risk of injury due to falling objects, falls to a lower or same level, overexertion, and excessive noise.

Construction Sites

Construction worksites can be complex, multi-employer sites. These sites can present numerous challenges, including lack of communication. General contractors usually organize the projects and use individual trade sub-contractors to perform specific tasks (e.g., plumbing, electrical work). These groups tend to work independently of each other and may be unaware of a pending dangerous situation.

The industry has a high concentration of immigrant and non-English speaking workers, which presents a potential safety problem because of the inability to communicate effectively. 14% of the construction workforce is comprised of “undocumented” workers.
