Bridge painter suffers serious workplace injuries in 12-feet fall

Working as part of a construction crew on Georgia highways and bridges is hazardous, and workers rely on their employers to properly evaluate work environments for potential safety hazards. Many workplace injuries can be prevented if all safety regulations are followed. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation into an incident in which a worker fell from a bridge that is under construction.

Deviation from approved plan causes fatal workplace injuries

Construction company owners in Georgia and across the country are required to provide safe workplace environments in which no known hazards exist. While construction sites must be assessed for safety hazards, architectural plans must be followed to avoid unexpected workplace injuries. A construction worker in another state died when a contractor decided to deviate from approved building plans.
