Especially now that summer is here in New York, residents of the state may see more orange barrels indicating roadwork is being done and they may see more buildings being erected or refurbished. Construction work is necessary, but it is also dangerous, and it is not unusual for construction site accidents to occur. In fact, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has labeled what it has coined the "Fatal Four" most common types of construction accidents.
