While an important industry, construction is still one of the most dangerous industries for employees. Regardless if the worker is onsite at a private residence, public building, or business, there are always risks. Workers are not the only individuals susceptible to harm. Those walking around or near a worksite can also face potential injuries.

Common construction site accidents and injuries often stem from the following: fall injuries, machinery accidents, electrocution, vehicle accidents, and exposure to toxic chemicals.
