Construction site safety improved in 2011

The improvement may be a result of updated safety regulations.

June 19, 2013 |

On-the-job construction fatalities dropped from 802 in 2010 to 781 in 2011, and recordable injuries fell from 4.7 per 100 workers in 2008 to 3.9 per 100 in 2011, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The improvement may be a result of updated safety regulations as well as more companies working with organizations that promote guidelines, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Associated General Contractors of America.
