Construction industry is one of the most dangerous work fields all over the world and especially in the US where updated construction materials are used. Therefore the safety of the workers is very important. The national institute for occupational safety and health informed that almost 10 percent workers of the US are engaged in the construction industry but every year more than 30 percent casualty cases along with fatal accidents take place in this country.
The law of occupational safety and health was passed in 1970 in the united sates where the provision of providing safe working environment to all the construction workers was included. Run over electrocution and other fatal accidents often take place in the construction sites therefore the constriction companies, under this law, are liable to provide the expenditure for medical services of the inured construction employees. Toe capped boots, safety jackets are also kept in the list of safety equipments by the construction companies.
