Focus Four Hazards Campaign 

Out of 5147 worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2017, 971 or 21% were in construction―that is, one in five worker deaths last year were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by struck-by, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” hazards were responsible for well over half (60%) of the construction worker deaths in 2017*, according to BLS reports.

Eliminating these Four Hazards would save 582 workers' lives each year .

We encourage you and your leadership to participate in this four month cooperative initiative.
