If you work in construction, you face many dangers as part of your job. Even if you are cautious and follow all safety protocols, you are still at risk. In many cases, construction accidents occur because of negligence on the part of those in charge. One out of every five worker deaths occurs in construction.

Common construction accidents:
- Equipment failures or accidents
- Falling objects
- Back-over or crushing accidents
- Structure collapse
- Fire or explosion
- Repetitive motion accidents
- Respiratory diseases
- Chemical poisoning
- Vehicle accidents
