More than any other industry, construction businesses must deal with frequent workers’ comp cases, onsite injuries and dangerous conditions. Construction business owners also still deal with issues that regular businesses face too, including those of drugs, disability and violence and hostility. Although often overlooked, OSHA provides advice and training on dealing with these circumstances as well, and a well-rounded education about these circumstances can prevent liability issues and promote a more productive workplace.


Construction officials say tax and regulatory reform and recent increases in infrastructure investments are helping boost employment, but warn that trade fights and labor shortages threaten future growth.


The construction industry has a $1.6 trillion opportunity. That’s how much will be added to the global economy in construction goods and services if the industry's productivity catches up with other sectors such as manufacturing and retail, which have made productivity strides through digitization and automation.
