Construction crews face serious dangers during the course of roadway projects. The Bureau of Labor Statistics at the U.S. Department of Labor in 2010 named work-related highway incidents the most common cause of job fatalities in Utah. Many workers are severely injured by speeding motorists, heavy machinery, and hazardous materials. Your employer has the duty to minimize your risks, and drivers have the obligation to approach construction sites with caution.
