The Fatal Four

By December 20, 2013 August 22nd, 2018 Uncategorized

Out of 3,945  worker fatalities in 2012, 775 or 19.6% were in construction. These “Fatal Four” were responsible for nearly three out of five (56%) construction worker deaths in 2012, The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports.

  • Falls:  278 out of 775 total deaths in 2012 (36%)
  • Struck by Object:  78 (10%)
  • Electrocutions:  66 (9%)
  • Caught-in/between:  13 (2%)

Eliminating the Fatal Four would save 435 workers’ lives in America every year.
