National news is covering a construction accident this morning. The workplace incident occurred out of state, in Ohio, but is a universal reminder of the danger that construction workers often face on the job.
While danger is expected in the field, a lot of dangers are preventable. Just because people work in construction does not mean that any expectation of safety standards goes out of the window. Officials are investigating whether the construction accident that occurred at a casino construction site this morning was the result of negligence.
Sources report that the accident at the Cincinnati construction site was so large that it took more than 20 fire companies to control the scene. Concrete was being poured this morning when a portion of the building collapsed. Thirteen of the workers at the site sustained workplace injuries, while 10 of the victims needed to be taken to the hospital for further treatment.
