Construction sites are some of the most dangerous working environments in the world, as demonstrated by the construction industry consistently leading the all-industries league table of occupational fatalities. Construction worker safety is threatened by many factors.
Fatal injuries to workers by most common accident (2019/20):
- Falls from Heights 45% 45%
- Trapped by Objects 23% 23%
- Struck by Moving Object 15% 15%
- Struck by Moving Vehicle 8% 8%
- Contact with Moving Machinery 3% 3%
Other risks include proximity to overhead/underground high voltage power lines, working in confined spaces, with vibrating tools, and at risk of exposure to noise, dust or fumes.
Tens of thousands of construction workers suffer short and long-term disability as a result of such injuries at work, and many hundreds of thousands of lost time incidents occur annually, significantly reducing productivity.
