There was a deadly accident at a construction project in New York City, New York on March 24, 2023.  According to reports, the worker was on the 12th floor of the under construction Chase Bank headquarters.  The worker fell through a hole in the floor, falling 20 feet.  The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to those impacted by this deadly accident.

Tragically, there have been a number of recent deaths on construction projects.  A worker was killed after being pinned by a vehicle axle in Wichita, Kansas on March 16, 2023.  A crane collapsed at a Hawthorne, New York construction site on March 16, 2023.  There was a deadly accident at a construction project in Clearwater, Florida on March 16, 2023.  A crane located on a barge tipped over into the water in Key Largo, Florida on March 21, 2023.

Despite being a vital part of the economy, construction projects often pose severe hazards both to construction workers and to the general public if precautions are not taken.  Each construction project poses its own unique risks and hazards based on the work being done.  Risks that may present themselves during a project must be carefully evaluated before the job begins.
