March 1, 2006 - Media representatives are invited to attend the Governor's Construction Safety and Health Forum on March 6th, at the VisTaTech Center on the campus of Schoolcraft College.
The construction industry is one of the most hazardous industries in Michigan. Only about four percent of Michigan's workforce is employed in construction-however, construction fatalities account for nearly 50 percent of all fatal workplace accidents.
