Construction work is known as one of the most dangerous fields in the nation. In fact, 21 percent of all nationwide fatalities occur in the construction industry according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). There is a high fatality rate because construction workers deal with heavy objects, work at great heights, and are likely be exposed to hazardous chemicals—causing workers to sustain serious injuries.
