Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  A construction crane caught fire in Corpus Christi, Texas on April 22, 2023.  There was a deadly construction accident in Sevierville, Tennessee on April 24, 2023.  There was a deadly fall at the under-construction Hyundai electric vehicle plant in Bryan County, Georgia on April 29, 2023.  There was a deadly auto accident in a construction zone along Interstate 40 in Garner, North Carolina on May 3, 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.
