Roadway construction worker accident statistics
According to national studies, more than 120 workers die each year in road construction sites. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Highway Administration, these largely preventable fatalities and injuries primarily occur due to three reasons:
- Runovers or backovers: Almost half of all worker fatalities in roadway work zones involve workers run over or backed over by vehicles or equipment. Construction vehicles are more likely to cause fatal vehicle collisions with workers.
- Vehicle or equipment collisions: Crashes involving vehicles or mobile equipment and workers is the second leading cause of worker fatalities in road construction zones.
- Trapped between or struck by objects: The third leading cause of fatalities is workers crushed or struck by non-vehicle objects or construction equipment.
Colorado work zone fatalities
Colorado has a large number of roadway construction projects every year due in part to winter weather damage and a growing population. According to the Colorado Department of Transportation, 23 public employees have been killed in accidents since 1939. Five of the fatalities occurred within the past five years. These figures do not account for private company fatalities. According to CDOT, the rate of injuries and fatalities to road construction workers is on the rise.
