The construction industry jobs that made the list of the top 25 most dangerous jobs include:
- derrick workers, who set up and operate drilling equipment
- crane operators
- landscaping supervisors
- highway and general maintenance workers
- mining machine operators
- cement masons
The new data come even as overall safety rates for both fatal and nonfatal injuries within construction improved between 1992 and 2015, with fatal outcomes down about 30% over that time period, according to the Center for Construction Research and Training (CPWR), a Silver Spring, Maryland-based safety consultancy.
