Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in the United States. Every year about two-thirds of fatal injuries in construction are caused by four leading hazards: falls, struck-by, electrocutions, and caught-in/between, defined as the Construction Focus Four by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
This dashboard summarizes trends in construction fatalities caused by the Construction Focus Four. Fatality data are from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries Database, maintained and updated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The dashboard includes fatalities in both the private and public construction sectors between 2011 and 2019 and is organized by injury type and major subsector. Bar charts show fatality counts by year, and pie charts provide the fatality distribution by injury type or subsector for the year(s) selected.
Information on specific charts and instructions for dashboard use are included in the information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.
To download all data included in the dashboard, click on the “Export to Excel” button in the top right corner. The data included in the Excel file will be based on the filters applied.
The dashboard will be updated annually when new data are available, with the next update scheduled for Spring 2022. If you have questions or comments, please email email@example.com.
