The "Focus Four Hazards" Safety Campaign

Construction's "Fatal Four"
Out of 5147* worker fatalities in private industry in calendar year 2017, 971 or 21% were in construction―that is, one in five worker deaths were in construction.
 
The leading causes of worker deaths on construction sites were falls, followed by struck-by, electrocution, and caught-in/between. These "Fatal Four" hazards were responsible for well over half (60%) of the construction worker deaths in 2017*, according to BLS reports.
 
  • Falls — 381 out of 971 total deaths in construction in CY 2017 (39%)
  • Struck by Object - 80 (8%)
  • Electrocutions - 71 (7%)
  • Caught-in/between* - 50 (5%)
 
* This category includes construction workers killed when caught-in or compressed by equipment or objects, and struck, caught, or crushed in collapsing structure, equipment, or material.
 
Eliminating these Four Hazards would save 582 workers' lives each year.
