Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 18, 2007
With rapid construction continuing across the United States, the news records a new preventable death at a construction site nearly every work day. Meanwhile, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is readying its 2005 National Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, its annual record of deaths on the job, in which the construction industry continues to place among the top five most fatal industries. With this ugly trend in mind, LegalView.com is proud to remind readers that they can always find a wealth of factual information on construction site accidents at LegalView.com's construction accident information portal.
More than one-fifth -- 22.8 percent -- of all workplace deaths in the United States are the deaths of construction workers, according to the BLS. This is partly explained by the workers' frequent use of heavy equipment and heights; falls were responsible for a staggering 394 deaths in 2005, and transportation accidents accounted for 318. This and other heavy equipment is essential to a construction worker's job -- which is precisely why authorities heavily regulate safety at job sites. Unfortunately, thousands of construction workers continue to die each year; thousands more sustain serious injuries such as amputations, crushed bones and electrocution in accidents that could have been stopped.
