Worker injured by falling materials

Comments Off

At a Florida construction site, a worker was injured when boards fell from a roof truss. The workers were building a warehouse at the time of the accident.

After a 200-foot fall, the boards hit a worker on ground level. He suffered head and spine injuries.

This accident involves issues of coordination of the work. When work is going on overhead, the areas beneath must be cleared of workers in case materials fall.
