What are the "Fatal Four" causes of construction worker deaths?

When a person in California thinks of the type of job that poses a risk to one's life, they may naturally think of jobs in the construction industry, and they would be right. Of the over 4,600 fatal workplace accidents in 2016, approximately 21 percent were in the construction industry. There were four major causes of death that were responsible for over 63 percent of fatal workplace accidents in the construction industry in 2016. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has coined the term the "Fatal Four" to describe these causes of death.

Career-ending injuries can be financially devastating

When a person is injured in an accident, whether it be a workplace accident, car crash or slip-and-fall case, the injuries they suffered could impact their entire life. Not only will they have to deal with extensive medical expenses, but sometimes their injuries are so severe that they are permanently unable to work. For example, an amputation, severe burn or soft tissue damage can result in a career-ending injury.
