Barge causes Eads Bridge scaffolding fall that kills worker

A company in Missouri that specializes in painting industrial structures is being investigated for safety violations after the recent death of a worker.

Industrial accident claims life of unprotected Missouri worker

Missouri workers who perform their daily duties surrounded by machinery in industrial plants are often exposed to multiple safety hazards.

Scissor lift collapse causes fatal injuries to Missouri worker

On March 12, yet another Missouri family received the shocking news of the death of a loved one in a work accident. Despite the strict safety regulations that are prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, accidents involving falls continue to take the lives of workers.

Furthermore, severe injuries -- or worse -- can be caused when mechanical equipment is not properly maintained.
