A 48 year old North Carolina man fell 33 feet from a roof onto a concrete floor. He was seriously injured while working on the construction of a warehouse in Rock Hill for a HVAC company, WT Nichols. The warehouse was owned by Atotech. This incident was the second this year in North Carolina where a worker fell at a construction site. OSHA is only required to investigate if there is a fatality, so it is not presently known if they will investigate here. Employers must insist on rigid workplace rules to try to cut down on all of these needless workplace injuries and deaths.
