It is widely known and accepted that construction sites are one of the most hazardous work environments. While regulatory bodies at state, national, local and professional level usually have strict regulatory guidelines that require the strictest of processes and procedures, accidents are still bound to happen.
As a matter of fact, the 2015 Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals that the construction industry had the highest number of worker related deaths with a whooping 937 worker deaths, which represented a 4% increase from 899 in the previous year.
So even when every regulation is followed, and proper processes and procedures are followed to the letter, all it takes is for one person to make a mistake, or for the quality of their work to be sub-par, for a construction site to experience a major accident, which can only cause untold and unimaginable injuries.
Because of the complex and specialized nature of the construction and/or engineering field, it can equally take a similarly specialized amount of knowledge to determine the root cause of a construction accident and take appropriate reparatory action.
