Other researchers agree with this as Hallowell (2010) indicates that the US construction industry has a fatality rate of 11.1 per 100,000 workers and a recordable injury rate of 239 per 10,000 full-time workers. In order to indicate the magnitude of the situation, Hallowell (2010) further states that the construction industry employs 8% of the American workforce but accounts for 21.7% of all work-related deaths.
