Workplace injuries on construction sites are common occurrences. For large projects that span multiple years with deca-million dollar budgets, even contractors with the best safety practices can expect dozens of injuries and related incidents to be reported in a given year. Many more incidents will go unreported, either because the incident is not deemed significant enough, or for other reasons, including the immigration status of the injured.
