Anne Arundel County Construction Worker Fatally ElectrocutedJune 14, 2018
A construction worker sustained a fatality after being electrocuted in Odenton, Maryland. The worker was installing siding on a house under construction on Wednesday afternoon, around 2:10 pm, when the fatal work accident occurred. Crews tried to resuscitate him, but he was unresponsive and succumbed to his fatal injuries after being electrocuted. OSHA will be investigating the incident.
In the past few weeks, many construction accidents ending in fatalities have taken place in several areas of Maryland. With this recent surge of tragedy within the construction industry, it is possible that OSHA may uncover violations at the work sites where these fatal accidents occurred. OSHA deems four life-threatening work hazards as the “Fatal Four,” which include being struck by an object, electrocutions, falls, and becoming caught between objects or equipment.
