Fatal construction worker accident similar to one last October

A 38-year-old man from Missouri lost his life while he was unloading massive steel pipes at a construction site in another state. This is a stark reminder of a fatal construction worker accident that occurred under similar circumstances in the same state last October. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is still investigating that incident.

Threats of workplace injury identified by OSHA inspectors

Business owners in Missouri are legally responsible for the protection of the health and safety of employees. If the Occupational Safety and Health Administration receives complaints about unsafe work environments, the company must allow federal safety inspectors access to the facility.

Pigeon droppings found to have caused work-related illness

An administrative law judge recently ruled that the widow of a deceased investigator that worked for a county prosecutor in Missouri is entitled to compensation after her husband's death. The man claimed workers' compensation for a work-related illness after developing a nodule in his lung that was removed and suspected to have been caused by exposure to pigeon droppings. He died five years later of a lung disease.
