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