The Value of Business Insurance Brokers to the Construction Industry

Construction is considered to be one of the most dangerous industries in the world. Scaling tall buildings, utilizing tools that could cause injury if handled improperly, and operating heavy machinery all make construction a very risky environment that puts both the workers and the property at risk. Property damage and employee accidents are all too common at construction sites. In fact, Forbes.com lists construction work as one of the deadliest jobs in America. According to their article, there were 210 fatalities that occurred last 2012, accruing a relatively high fatality rate of 17.4%.

In a high-risk industry such as construction, contractors have to learn how to anticipate the worst. Accidents are bound to happen no matter how rigorous their safety measures are.
