Among other things, a construction site is governed by federal and state laws such as Occupational Safety & Health Administration Laws (OSHA). If the proper safety regulations are not in place a construction site can be a very dangerous place. These laws are put into place by the government to protect construction workers. If these regulations are properly followed, many accidents can be avoided.
