    Speaker Notes:

    This slide shows where the majority of the fatalities have occurred in the construction industry. And as you can see, falls accounted for more deaths than any of the other focus four hazards. Falls accounted for 34% of the construction fatalities in 2008 and 2009 and 35% of the fatalities since 2005. We can, and we must, reverse this undesirable trend.
