There have been 19 workplace deaths in the first three months of this year, the Workplace Safety and Health Council revealed in a report in April. Out of these 19, fatalities at construction sites account for 12 of them. That is one death per week, a shocking statistic. Last year, there were a total of 59 workplace deaths, and 33 of them had occurred at construction sites. That works out to 7 fatalities per 100,000 workers, a rise from the 5.9 in 2012.
