Construction is one of the most dangerous industries in the United States, with over 1,000 fatal injuries each year since 2016. About two-thirds of those were caused by the Construction Focus Four hazards, including fall to lower level, struck-by, electrocution, and caught-in/between.
This dashboard summarizes fatal Focus Four injury trends in construction. Injury data is from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI). The dashboard examines Focus Four injuries by injury type and major subsector.
Dashboard instructions and information on filters, charts, and definitions are included in the information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.
You can download the data as a spreadsheet. Each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.
The dashboard will be updated annually when new data is available, with the next update scheduled for Spring 2024. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
