Safety Pays. Falls Cost.

AFL-CIO NOW Blog Post on Fatality Map

By on Sep 14, 2012 in Updates |

AFL-CIO Now has a blog post calling attention to the new fatality maps that have been posted. From the post:

Falls are the leading cause of death among construction workers and cause the second-highest number of injuries. A new interactive map marks fatal construction falls and graphically conveys what numbers alone cannot.

A construction worker dies in a fall accident almost every working day. In 2010, 255 workers died and more than 10,000 were injured.
