Construction accidents impact people on the job, at home and around the site. Whether a worker fell or was electrocuted, that individual has suffered an injury that was likely preventable. Employers have a responsibility to keep their employees safe. Failing to do so can lead to official investigations, fines and penalties. On top of that, the worker who was injured is entitled to workers' compensation, so he or she can focus on recovering while receiving medical and financial benefits.
In this case, a construction worker was killed in a fall in Asheboro, according to a report from March 23. The news states that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) plans to investigate the incident.
