A construction worker was killed when he was struck by falling scaffolding which was being assembled by co-workers. As the co-workers were moving scaffolding components places, portions of the scaffolding fell and struck him.

The worker suffered head injuries which proved fatal.

One of the basic safety concepts in construction is to stay clear of work being performed overhead due to the dangers of falling equipment and materials. The parties in charge of the work have the responsibility of ensuring that the areas below overhead work are kept clear while the overhead work is ongoing.
