More Deaths, More OSHA Fines…..

Here is the article:

Yesterday I blogged about a gentleman that was killed and the resulting OSHA fine to the company.  This morning I ran across this one.

Since I was on my soapbox yesterday I won’t comment much on this one, except to say this did not have to happen.  I do have to point out this quote however:

AFTER the deaths, the Austin City Council directed staff to come up with new rules and programs, which could include better training, city inspections and more access to safety equipment, to make construction sites in the city safer.”

After……?

Let’s try before next time.
