Small construction companies seeing upped fatality rates

Small companies make up a significant portion of the construction industry. It is estimated that, in 2016, around nine out of every 10 construction companies in the U.S. had less than 20 employees. And a vast majority of these small firms had less than 10 workers. So, how small construction companies act regarding worker safety matters considerably.

Unfortunately, it appears that the likelihood of worker fatalities has been going up for small construction companies here in the U.S. in recent years. According to statistics from a Center for Construction Research and Training report, the worker fatality rate for construction firms with less than 20 workers rose 57 percent between 2008 and 2016.

Promoting Safety On Construction Sites

As a construction worker, you put your body on the line every time you go to work. You do your best to remain safe on the job. Every day you wear proper protection and stay diligent. After all, you have a family that depends on you.

While you try your best to be safe at work, accidents still happen. You wear your work boots, ear plugs and hard hat to prevent injury. You can still remain diligent in other ways to stay safe.
