Hearings on the safety of construction sites, agency reviews of construction sites, and a day-long work stoppage contributed to reducing the number of construction-related deaths in Las Vegas. A dozen workers died during the final months of the construction boom in Las Vegas. However, in the past six months, no fatalities have been reported. "From the management on down, there's greater emphasis placed on safety now," said Steve Holloway, vice president of the local chapter of Associated General Contractors. "Safety is so much about culture, about environment. If management from top down is concerned, then employees are going to be concerned about safety."
