Physical Hazards

Construction laborers and other LIUNA members can face a wide range of physical hazards on jobsites. All of the “fatal four” hazards in construction – falls, electrocutions and struck-by and caught-in/between incidents – are physical hazards. These fatal four lead to more on-the-job fatalities among construction laborers than any other hazard. Other physical hazards workers face may include work zone intrusions, trench collapses and workplace violence.
