Accidents also can occur to innocent bystanders or pedestrians who pass through a construction zone. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the accident rate in the construction industry is one of the highest in the United States. In many cases, construction industry injury accidents are due to violation of Florida law and applicable construction and building codes.
