Abstract or Summary
  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics cites construction as the most hazardous industry within the United States. The construction industry was responsible for 20% of all fatal occupational injuries in 2014. Approximately 20% of the construction injuries occur within Heavy Civil Engineering, in which there are 950,000 workers employed annually. This study identifies the most frequent and severe accidents in transportation infrastructure projects and how they occur through creating fault trees and performing root cause analysis to identify the causes of these accidents. Fault tree analysis is then used to determine the major risk factors and the relationship between these risk factors and the severe accidents.
