Compared to most people, construction workers are more vulnerable to hazards. For example, falls account for 48.9% of fatal injuries in the private construction sector, according to 2013 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Falls can also cost as much as $106,000 per employee, based on numbers crunched by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Consequently, it's important to implement fall prevention measures in construction sites.
