Transportation incidents — many of which are considered a type of struck-by injury, one of the Construction Focus Four — are a leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in the construction industry. Pedestrian vehicular incidents account for almost half of all fatal struck-by injuries in construction.
This story-dashboard summarizes transportation injuries in construction by looking at trends for 1) Nonfatal Injuries and 2) Fatal Injuries and Crashes. You can navigate between these two sets of charts by clicking either the blue caption boxes or the arrows at the top of the dashboard.
All data used for the dashboard are publicly available from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Information on specific charts and instructions for dashboard use are included in the Data Dashboard information icon located to the right of the dashboard title. To get a full view of the dashboard on a mobile device, zoom out slightly and use landscape mode, which will provide a better navigation experience.
You can download the data as a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is color-coded for each set of charts, and each worksheet’s name is based on the corresponding dashboard chart.
The dashboard will be updated annually when new data are available, with the next update scheduled for Fall 2023. If you have questions or comments, please email [email protected].
