IntroductionDespite efforts to eliminate serious injury and fatalities (SIFs), fatality rates have plateaued for the last 10 years,
and the construction industry still remains as one of the deadliest industries (US Bureau of Labor Statistics 2020a).
In 2019 alone there were 1,102 construction worker fatalities, the highest number of deaths in construction
since 2011 (Brown et al. 2021; US Bureau of Labor Statistics 2020b). In response to the intolerable societal, emotional,and financial distress associated with SIFs, the construction industry continues to increase its investment in SIF prevention.
