Construction fatalities on the rise

Construction sites can be dangerous places for far too many Connecticut workers. The combination of exposed building sites, heavy machinery and, at times, poor safety practices can lead to severe and ongoing workplace injuries caused by on-the-job accidents. In addition, there has been an upward trend in serious incidents at construction jobs; between 2011 to 2015, fatalities rose by 26 percent at these work sites. Some types of accidents rose particularly quickly -- for example, injuries for workers caught in or between objects shot up by 33 percent during that time.

Companies based in Connecticut need to take the safety of their employees seriously. Failure to do so could result in workers spending weeks in the hospital and incurring medical bills in the hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. In addition to the medical bills, employers could face OSHA fines and other costs that can significantly impact its ability to remain in business.
