    Construction’s “Fatal Four”

    Out of 4,251* worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2014, 874 or 20.5% were in construction―that is, one in five worker deaths last  year were in construction. The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by electrocution, struck by object, and caught-in/between. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for more than half (58.1%) the construction worker deaths in 2014*, BLS reports. Eliminating the Fatal Four would save 508 workers’ lives in America every year.

    1. Falls — 349 out of 874 total deaths in construction in CY 2014 (39.9%)
    2. Electrocutions — 74 (8.5%)
    3. Struck by Object — 73 (8.4%)
    4. Caught-in/between — 12 (1.4%)

    3. Mаrk оr remove any сhаngеѕ іn flооr level: Stерѕ or сhаngеѕ іn flооr lеvеl, particularly where thеу may seem unexpected, аrе a health аnd ѕаfеtу hаzаrd but thеrе аrе a numbеr оf wауѕ уоu саn reduce the rіѕk thеу саn саuѕе іn thе workplace.

    9. Sіgnроѕt changes іn floor ѕurfасе: Some wоrkрlасеѕ will hаvе significant сhаngеѕ іn flooring frоm оnе аrеа tо another аnd mоvіng from, fоr еxаmрlе, a wеt surface to a dry one іѕ a соmmоn саuѕе оf accidents аt wоrk. Alwауѕ аlеrt реорlе whеn thеrе іѕ ѕuсh a сhаngе.
    10. Rеmоvе роtеntіаllу hаzаrdоuѕ objects: Objects lіkе heaters аnd handbags are a tripping risk аnd ѕhоuld nоt bе left іn wаlkwауѕ. Stоrе thеѕе thіngѕ аwау and make ѕurе staff аrе aware thаt they muѕtn’t bе left where реорlе аrе wаlkіng.

    Latest Developments in Workplace Injury Law…

    Today in the United States, workers are not guaranteed a single paid day off by federal law, and many aren’t even entitled to unpaid time. The Center for American Progress presents a series of fact sheets explaining the three major types of laws that give workers rights in relation to workplace leave. This fact sheet addresses paid family and medical leave laws. Medical leave, which covers a worker’s own serious health condition. Parental leave, which covers bonding with a new child. Parental leave may also be referred to as maternity leave, paternity leave, or bonding leave. Caregiving leave, which covers caring for a loved one with a serious health condition. Deployment-related leave, which covers needs in connection with a loved one’s current or impending active-duty military service, such as making legal or financial … Read more
    While not widely spoken about, the health care industry has long been regarded as one of the most dangerous professions due to the recognized hazard of workplace violence many medical providers face while performing their duties. Due to a looming rise in violence against health care workers, causing severe injuries, many health care employees are demanding federal protections to be put in place as a response. Prior to the onset of the current pandemic, health care workers suffered more workplace injuries as a result of violence than any other profession, with approximately 654,000 harmed annually, according to studies reported by the American Hospital Association ("AHA"). Since the onset of the pandemic, however, violence against hospital employees alone has markedly increased. For example, the AHA studies indicate that 44% of nurses reported an increase in physical violence, and 68% reported an increase of verbal abuse. When violence erupts in a health… Read more
