Top 5 Nonfatal Workers’ Compensation Claims for the Construction Industry Contribute More Than $11.3 Billion in Losses


Does your construction site contribute to these injuries/monetary losses? Are losses way too familiar to you? Do they keep you up at night?

Why not work on improving or eliminating your losses by using the TapRooT® System to find and fix the root causes of those incidents so they don’t happen again? And, remember, these are nonfatal injuries. Any of these could easily lead to a fatality, and that is just not acceptable.

Notice on the safety index provided, per Liberty Mutual, a few questions to consider — and remember that injuries equal losses.

While Liberty Mutual’s safety data offers some questions to help in your investigation, the TapRooT® process provides you with ALL the questions you need to ask to reach the root cause.

These questions are based on extensive human factors research. Let the process help you and not rely on your Safety Manager’s experience to know what questions to ask. The TapRooT® process guides you all the way through, from initially gathering the evidence to finding the actual root causes, to developing effective corrective actions, to each root cause found. It is a COMPLETE process.
