- The “Fatality Mapping Project” just released its 2016 “Construction Fatality Maps“. The release consists of 2 maps. The first map shows all fatalities on construction sites in the US. The second map only shows fatal falls on construction sites. These maps are interactive. Each pin represents a construction worker who died on the job in 2016. A click on the pin will provide the reader with more information about the accident. It also links to additional news coverage and OSHA records related to the fatal accident.
The maps are based on data from media sources and OSHA investigations. Not all but a significant amount of all fatal construction accidents in the US are reported on the map. They are a reminder of the dangers and risks encountered everyday by construction workers and of the need for improved safety in this industry.
