Construction workers at high risk for some injuries

Construction workers in Connecticut and throughout the country may be more likely to suffer from accidents in which they are hit by a vehicle, piece of equipment or an object than workers in other industries. The Center for Construction Research and Training released a report that said that between 2011 and 2015, 800 construction workers died in these types of accidents. In about half of those accidents, the person was hit by a vehicle, and in the other half, the person was hit by equipment or an object. More than half of the vehicle strikes were in work zones. The highest rate of fatalities was among highway maintenance workers.

It also details which solutions will be able to provide the companies with assistance for electronic submission.

Last September, the department had proposed mandating the use of the technology to prevent commercial trucks from speeding.
