Construction job sites are dangerous places to work. In 2017, 20.7% of worker fatalities were in construction. The leading causes, also known as the ‘fatal four’, were falls, struck by object, electrocution and caught-in/between and were responsible for more than half of the construction worker deaths that year.
Many of the accidents on a construction job site are due to negligence, unsafe worksite practices, improper use of tools and equipment, and lack of protective safeguards.
We want safe roads to travel on. That means when it is time to fix or upgrade our roadways, work zones are set up which can change traffic patterns, narrow lanes of traffic, close highway exits, set up detours and other construction activities.
Road construction is a necessary evil to maintain our roadways and keep them safe. However, it can also be very frustrating when you come up on construction work zones you didn’t expect as you’re driving to your destination, especially if there are detours you have to contend with.
