A construction worker took a fatal fall from an elementary school building in Franklin Township, New Jersey. On Tuesday morning, around 7 am, the fatal accident occurred when the 39-year-old man from Point Pleasant, New Jersey fell 30 feet from the school building, which was under construction. First responders found the worker unconscious, and transported him to a local hospital where he succumbed to his fatal injuries. OSHA is investigating the construction accident.
Due to the dangerous nature of construction work, employees may already be aware that they are risking their lives when performing certain tasks. In some cases, though, the employer may fail to provide safe working conditions, which could lead to debilitating injuries for the workers or even fatalities on the job. Generally, any industry may be hazardous for employees if employers neglect to keep workers free from harm or fail to put safety measures in place.
