The top 5 causes of construction worker deaths

Construction workers in Illinois are probably aware that the industry they work in is one of the most dangerous around. OSHA states that there were almost 1,000 construction worker deaths in 2016 and that roughly 60 percent of these could have been avoided with proper training and equipment. It can be good, then, to recap what the most common hazards are in the industry.

Free OSHA resources aid contractors with silica dust compliance

There are new rules regarding exposure to crystalline silica dust that contractors and construction workers in Illinois and elsewhere around the country must follow.

Improvements in safety technology on construction sites

Construction workers in Illinois may be safer if certain types of technology are adopted on their work sites. This is one of the most dangerous industries, and in 2015, more than 900 construction workers around the country died from on-the-job injuries. Around 10 percent of all construction workers are injured on the job each year.
