Abstract
Construction and renovation of homes and buildings results in many injuries and deaths each year in the United States. From 1998 to 2008, 82 people were killed in construction-related incidents in Oklahoma. Construction-related deaths accounted for 7% of all work-related deaths in Oklahoma during this time. More than half of all construction-related deaths were fall-related. All fatal injuries involved male workers; ages ranged from 13 to 80. Fatal injuries were most common in June and August and least common in January and December. More than half of all fatal injuries occurred between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
