"After choosing Building Construction as a major, I quickly discovered that the biggest concern in the industry was the issue of safety. Although the construction industry comprises a mere 4%, twelve percent of all fatal injuries at work are construction related, with electrocution being the 2nd most cited cause. This awakened me to the genuine need for a positive change to make the construction industry safer."
