A new report from the Minnesota area's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) indicates that the construction industry is still incredibly dangerous to workers -- despite all the safety regulations that are supposed to be in force.
"Working construction" used to be a young person's occupation. After all, younger people are better suited to the labor-intensive work of construction than older workers whose bodies are starting to show the signs of a lifetime of wear and tear.
If you work in construction, nobody has to tell you that your job is dangerous. However, some dangers are more significant than others.
