Construction accidents: New York tragedy claims worker's life

No foul play is suspected regarding a fatality at a New York building site on a recent Thursday. As with all deaths caused by construction accidents, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be investigating this one to determine the employer's compliance with federal safety regulations. Law enforcement stated that drugs and alcohol seemed not to have played a role in this tragedy.

He commented on the chances that contractors take without considering the potential consequences. Too many construction workers suffer fatal or serious injuries that result from noncompliance with safety regulations.

OSHA fines company $1.5 million after fatal workplace accident

Trench collapses have claimed too many lives of workers nationwide, including in New York.

The safety agency recently reported its findings after investigating a fatal workplace accident when a trench collapsed in a neighboring state.

Fall from second floor causes serious injuries

Safety regulators such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration work to prevent fatalities, injuries and illnesses in workplaces in New York and elsewhere in the country. However, noncompliance with regulations continues to jeopardize those undertakings -- leading to serious injuries and deaths. OSHA says the annual fatality rate nationwide exceeds 4,500 workers in different industries, and falls form a significant percentage of those numbers.
