In its occupational fatality report for 2017, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics noted several trends good and bad that should be of interest to workers in diverse industries in Illinois.

These jobs are what make the construction industry dangerous

If you are new to the construction industry in Chicago, you may not know how dangerous your job really is. Unfortunately, construction workers suffer injuries every day even when they follow every required safety measure. In other words, sometimes things simply go wrong either due to equipment malfunctioning or another worker's mistake or negligence. When this happens, you could not only end up injured enough to miss work, but, if the injuries are serious, you might end up having to learn alternative skills in order to reenter the workforce.
