One investigation that involved the death of a Florida construction worker has come to a close.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has finished its investigation of one construction worker who died in April, according to Nwfdailynews.

No one was cited for the worker’s death after he was run over by a front-end loader on a jobsite.

OSHA, however, did cite the company, H&T Contractors, for not having a seat belt in the front-end loader.

The construction worker died after he and two other men walked in front of the front-end loader at the jobsite, the article states.

On any jobsite, it’s important all employees and employers are following the proper safety precautions.
