Falls, Slips, and Trips in Construction

Falls, slips, and trips are one of the leading causes of construction injuries, with over 300 fatal and 20,000 nonfatal fall injuries annually since 2013.

This dashboard examines fatal and nonfatal falls, slips, and trips by event and subsector. Data are from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI), Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII), and the Current Population Survey (CPS). CFOI and SOII data were downloaded from BLS, and CPS was downloaded from IPUMS.

Dashboard instructions and information on filters, charts, and definitions are included in the information icon Data Dashboard information icon located to the right of the dashboard title.

You can download the data as a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is color-coded for each set of charts, and each worksheet name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
