Readers of this blog know that just about any profession can pose a risk to one's safety and well-being. However, there are some professions that tend to be more dangerous than others. Amongst these professions is construction worker. These men and women often perform their job duties at heights and near moving vehicles. They also operate heavy machinery that, when improperly kept or operated negligently, can cause serious injuries and death.
Unfortunately, one New York worker was recently injured in a fall at a construction site. Reports indicate that the worker was performing his duties on the roof of a church when he fell two stories, landing on a shed. The man was taken to the hospital where he was listed in critical condition. Witnesses to the accident indicate that they have had concerns with the construction site's safety, and one man stated he even made a report about it. The construction company has not responded to the incident, which remains under investigation.
