Every day in the United States, 13 people die at work. Every year, nearly 4 million people suffer a workplace injury. Just over 17 percent of work-related deaths happen in the construction industry, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Surrounded by heavy machinery, often at elevated heights while standing on scaffolds, construction workers, bystanders, and passersby may be exposed to many risks on a daily basis.
