    Monday, Monday, Can't trust that day? Report says it's as safe as any other - The Building Tradesman
    There is a popular conception that most construction fatalities occur on Mondays and Fridays - but the statistics don't bear this out.

    Monday and Wednesday had an almost identical number of fatal construction events, 148 and 146, respectively, and Friday had the fewest number of fatal events, 96, when weekends are excluded.

    Because the total number of construction hours worked each day is not known, 'it is not possible to conclude that any one day is more or less hazardous than another,' said the report, released in March by the University of Tennessee

    The two-hour periods before and after the noon hour contained the most fatal events - 151 and 157, respectively - but it is not possible to calculate hourly event rates.
