"Other than mining and agriculture, construction project sites are the most dangerous workplaces in the United States. The construction industry accounts for about 20% of the fatalities that occur in the industrialized work force, even though construction workers account for only 8% of the industrial man-hours worked in the United States." John Schaufelberger and Ken-Yu Lin, Construction Project Safety.
Construction management is a professional discipline applied to construction planning, design, and process. Professional construction managers (CMs) address the needs of owners by providing management services and expertise tailored to the project, independent of the chosen contract format or project delivery method. CMs apply comprehensive project controls to help manage the critical issues of time, cost, scope, quality, and safety. (OSHA)
