There was an accident at a construction site in Chicago, Illinois on February 20, 2023.  According to reports, two workers were injured in a scaffolding collapse after the facade of an under construction building fell.  The accident occurred in the 3300 block of West Warren Boulevard.  The workers were taken to Stroger Hospital for medical care.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  Five workers were injured when a rebar cage fell on them in Queens, New York on February 6, 2023.  A crane fell onto an under construction building in Brighton, Massachusetts on February 8, 2023.  There was a crane accident at a Madison, Wisconsin construction site on February 10, 2023.  A worker was hit by a dump truck in Fort Wayne, Indiana on February 13, 2023.  There was a deadly fall accident at a construction project in Sarasota, Florida on February 15, 2023.

Despite being a vital part of the economy, construction projects often pose severe hazards both to construction workers and to the general public if precautions are not taken.  Each construction project poses its own unique risks and hazards based on the work being done.  Risks that may present themselves during a project must be carefully evaluated before the job begins.
