When Construction Accidents Result In Fatalities

Construction work is inherently risky and hazardous. Men and women work with machines in close proximity for long hours. Subcontractors handling different aspects of construction projects often create dangerous conditions at the job sites — for example, by leaving debris strewn in walking areas, or by removing warning signs next to unprotected openings in floors under construction.
