Construction workers (including artisan contractors, electricians, installers, etc.) have a higher risk of job-related injury or illness than workers in any other occupation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Workers in the construction industry can fall from scaffolding, ladders, and roofs. They can become injured by equipment and tools, be exposed to chemicals or fumes, or develop fatigue or repetitive stress injuries.
Whether they are carpenters, roofers, drywall installers, electricians, excavators, deck builders, siding installers, or pavers—construction insurance helps care for employees in case of accidents and helps protect the small business from further liability and financial loss.
