Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths and injuries on construction projects.  Two workers became trapped after a cherry picker accident while performing work on Loop 1604 in San Antonio, Texas on May 8, 2024.  There was a deadly trench collapse in Noblesville, Indiana on May 13, 2024.  A highway construction worker was struck and killed by a UPS driver in Pottawattamie County, Iowa on May 16, 2024.  A crane collapsed and fell onto a cement truck in Houston, Texas on May 16, 2024.  There was a deadly crane accident in Park City, Utah on May 18, 2024.

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.
