OSHA investigation launched after fatal accident

People in Minnesota who work in the construction industry know that every job site has numerous hazards, which is why there are so many strong and clear safety requirements outlined for construction companies and workers to follow. Unfortunately, there are situations when the documented safety standards are not followed and serious - or even fatal - accidents occur. According to a report in Bring Me The News, data from the Minnesota Occupational Safety and Health Administration indicates that the city of St. Paul alone has experienced four work-related deaths in 2019 so far.

The most recent workplace death in St. Paul happened at the site of the new China Garden. A man was working there where an object fell from above and struck him. No details were given as to what the object was that fell and hit the man. The worker was taken to a hospital but he was unable to survive the traumatic injuries he experienced. 

The incident happened in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday. OSHA is said to have launched an investigation into the matter. This will hopefully uncover any potential violations or other issues that may have contributed to the untimely death of this man who was only 38 years old.

Reports did not provide insight into whether or not work has been halted at the China Garden while the investigation is underway. It is also not known if any other workers were injured by the falling object itself or by any collateral damage or impact it may have had.
