Construction is a high-risk occupation for all crafts. Sadly, the year to year statistics keep repeating. The issues are wide ranging, but all can be successfully addressed. Year after year, the injury and citation statistics remain almost constant for the top 10. That is the problem. Our goal is to find ways to stop this trend and develop ways to keep construction sites safe and profitable.
