    Content:

    • Two major classes of hazardous work involved in construction are roofing and carpentry.
    • Among these workers, falls from heights comprise significant portions of injuries and costs. This analysis looks at workers' compensation data for injuries resulting from falls from elevations, and from falls from ladders and scaffolds.
    • Data come from statistics collected from insured employers in 36 states, which comprises approximately 1/3 of total workers' compensation benefits.
