Construction worker falls to his death during old boiler removal

Construction accidents can take many forms, and are not always connected with the erection of new structures. Sometimes they can occur when workers are in the process of removing an existing structure or large piece of equipment.

Collapsed scaffolding leaves questions of safety at jobsite

Questions concerning the safety of a company’s work practices arose recently when six construction workers were buried under the falling debris of collapsed scaffolding at a jobsite in the Midwest. Investigators at the scene conclude the winds most likely played a factor, but their concern focused on two central issues.  The plastic covering the scaffolding, which was designed to serve as a shield against the elements of nature, could have served as a sail, pulling the scaffolding loose from its moorings. Investigators also wish to know whether the scaffolding was secured to the building, and if so, how it was secured. The company has reportedly refused to comment.
