    Construction laborers, who earn an average annual salary or $30,890, are in a growing field. The BLS projects the number of jobs to grow by 13 percent by 2024.

    These workers have a high rate of injuries, however, given the nature of the job. OSHA notes that one in five worker deaths in 2014 took place in the construction field. The top four causes of fatalities were responsible for about six out of 10 construction worker deaths, the agency said. Those "fatal four" are falls, electrocutions, being struck by an object and being caught between objects, equipment or material.
