On-the-Job Falls in the U.S.
According to OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), the construction industry leads all others in work-related falls. Slips, trips, and falls are the most common type of work-related construction site accident and account for close to 40 percent of construction worker fatalities. Construction sites involve often dangerous work done at high elevations where a fall can lead to severe injuries such as head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more.
While the construction industry is one of the most dangerous due to the type of work done and the elevations involved, falls can occur in any work environment. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the highest number of nonfatal falls occur in health-related services, retail, and wholesale sites. Manufacturing sites, warehouses, chemical plants, and even office buildings can all be workplaces where hazards lead to falls.
Worked-related falls in industries other than construction are associated with:
- Wet, slippery, or oily floors or other surfaces
- Poorly lit workspaces
- Cluttered workspaces
- Electrical cords and cables
- Filing cabinet and desk drawers left open
