Construction is a high hazard industry that comprises a wide range of activities involving construction, alteration, and/or repair. Examples include residential construction, bridge erection, roadway paving, excavations, demolitions, and large-scale painting jobs. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, faulty ladders, unguarded stairs and scaffolds, and improperly designed egress routes.
