Construction workers build our roads, homes, workplaces, and maintain our nation's infrastructures. Construction work remains, perhaps, the most dangerous occupation in the United States. Construction workers face daily risks working in high places, around heavy construction equipment, toxic chemicals and other construction related hazards. The National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (NIOSH) provides national and world leadership in trying to prevent work-related accidents, illness, injury, disability, and death by systematically gathering information, conducting targeted research and translating that knowledge into products and services tailored to address construction needs.
