AFL-CIO NOW Blog Post on Fatality Map
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.
