Construction sites are dangerous places for millions of workers who face hazards from improper safety practices. The Department of Labor has stringent rules that are designed to protect workers, but they are effective only when responsible owners abide by them. The most common causes of construction site accidents include these:
- Strikes from objects
- Entrapments that bind or trap workers
