Fatal Scaffolding Collapse Occurs at Maryland School Construction SiteDecember 12, 2017
At the construction site for a new elementary school in Urbana, Maryland, two workers fell when the scaffolding collapsed. The subcontractor succumbed to his fatal injuries after falling about 25 feet from the scaffolding while the other worker sustained leg injuries on Monday morning. He received treatment at the Frederick Memorial Hospital after the scaffolding collapsed. The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) were notified about the construction accident.
Although many workers realize how dangerous the nature of their work may be, if safety measures are not taken or the property is not properly maintained where they are working, they may unexpectedly incur personal injuries or potential fatalities. Unfortunately, some businesses fail to secure the work site if they decide to cut costs or speed up the amount of time in which to complete construction or production, which may lead to accidents. Even if the employee survives an accident, they may no longer be able to work due to lengthy physical trauma.
