Construction workers vulnerable to struck-by hazards

Employers can do more to prevent fatal struck-by injuries in the construction sector, according to a report released Wednesday.

Struck-by hazards are a major cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in construction, with 804 construction workers dying from struck-by injuries, more than any other major industry, during the period of 2011 to 2015, according to a study by CPWR-The Center for Construction Research and Training in Silver Spring, Maryland.
