Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  There was a crane collapse in Delray Beach, Florida on June 1, 2023.  A building collapsed in New Haven, Connecticut on June 2, 2023.  A dump truck hit and killed a construction worker during a repaving project near Pembroke, New York on June 7, 2023.  A worker was crushed between a dump truck and a tracked skid steer in Vinton, Iowa on June 9, 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.
