Will There Be a Massachusetts Law Calling for Jail Time for Executives of Companies that Cause Fatalities?

The construction injury is one of the most hazardous in the US. Deaths at construction sites top the list of work related fatalities. And the root causes of these deaths often point to management failures.

If you frequently visit this blog you’ve read the “One Step Away from Death” article and the “Stop the Sacrifices” article. Once you read these, you know what my thoughts are.

After a fatal scaffolding accident, the Massachusetts legislature may take action to pass a law that would put executives behind bars. For more information see:

Good management prevents fatalities – thus there is no one to blame.

Bad management blames the worker – or anyone else besides themselves.
