Construction sites are among the most dangerous workplaces in the United States. While the construction industry provides employment to millions of people, thousands of construction workers are injured or killed every year, and many construction site injuries lead to hospitalization, permanent disability or death. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction is responsible for the greatest number of deaths of any private work sector.
