It’s hard to belive, but another contruction site worker fell to his death today in North Dakota. The worker was identified as Terry Helsene, 33, of Minnesota. He fell 20 feet down an elevator shaft at his work place. The Occupational Heath and Safety Administration is investigating. However, OSHA must not be doing a very good job on these cases. There must be stricter penalties for owners who put their workers at risk. The number of fall injuries and deaths on worksites is far too great. The tragedy is that every injury and death can be avoided if contsruction site owners and project managers paid more attention to workplace safety.
