There was a deadly crash at a construction project in Woodlawn, Maryland on March 22, 2023.  According to reports, a vehicle traveling on northbound Interstate 695 went between the concrete barriers into a construction zone.  The vehicle struck numerous workers before overturning.  Six workers were pronounced dead at the scene of the horrific crash.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this deadly accident.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  A worker was killed after being pinned by a vehicle axle in Wichita, Kansas on March 16, 2023.  A crane collapsed at a Hawthorne, New York construction site on March 16, 2023.  There was a deadly accident at a construction project in Clearwater, Florida on March 16, 2023.  A crane located on a barge tipped over into the water in Key Largo, Florida on March 21, 2023.  A worker was killed in a fall accident at a construction project in New York City on March 24, 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.
