There was a deadly construction accident in Chicago, Illinois on June 30, 2023.  According to reports, a contractor was killed during the construction of the street course for NASCAR’s street course.  The victim was electrocuted while performing his work.  The victim was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this tragic accident.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  There was a deadly roof collapse in Friendswood, Texas on June 13, 2023.  There was a deadly fall accident in Dearborn, Michigan on June 21, 2023.  A worker was struck by a passing vehicle in Catawba County, North Carolina on June 26, 2023.  A construction worker died after overheating in Fort Bend County, Texas on June 16, 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.
