It’s the season of giving across the world and Vesta Construction is honored to be able to donate to Construction Angels, a company dedicated to offering relief to families of fallen construction workers as a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.
As one of the first to respond to a construction fatality, Construction Angels is integral to facilitating access to both financial relief and grief counseling for the surviving family members.
At Vesta Construction Websites, we provide services to companies across the country; consequently, we deeply appreciate this type of organization and their generosity.

Construction Angels’ stated mission is “to assist the family at the beginning of their grieving process with hopes to provide them with a sense of comfort, both financially and emotionally.” We believe that this mission is critical due to the high rate of worker fatalities every year.
According to OSHA’s recorded statistics, more than 14 workers on average die every day due to work-related accidents. In 2018, OSHA recorded almost 5,000 deaths with over 20% of those deaths being in the construction industry.
While many families are wrapping gifts and baking cookies while holiday tunes play in the background, we realize that not every family is experiencing the holidays the same way this year.
Our team at Vesta Construction Websites would like to express our gratitude to Constuction Angels’ cause and our heartfelt condolences to those who have lost a loved one this year.
As we continue to provide quality websites and content for construction companies across the nation, we intend to also continue highlighting safety regulations and protocols in the hopes of seeing a reduced number of work-related accidents in the coming year.
