Construction workers are not only engaged in one of the most demanding jobs today, they are also involved in one of the most dangerous. Workers will often work long hours, and they are usually surrounded by power tools, environmental hazards and heavy machinery. These factors, when combined, can usually lead to construction workers having accidental deaths at their work place. In fact, thousands of workers usually die each day, and the circumstances that surround each death are usually unique. For instance, a foreign substance on a floor may cause a worker to slip and fall, and this may result to an accident.
