Second Maryland Casino Construction Accident Causes One Death, One Serious Injury

By Alpert Schreyer on August 12, 2011

In a second incident at the same construction site, an accident at the building site for a Maryland casino led to one death and one serious injury on July 29, 2011. One of the construction workers was hospitalized with critical injuries and the other was pronounced dead at the scene. The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health Administration is involved in the investigation. Just 14 days earlier, a construction worker suffered injuries when a block of concrete fell on his head.

Construction workers face a number of hazards each time they set foot on a job site. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reports that 816 construction workers died on the job in 2009. Those deaths account for a full 19 percent of all work-related fatalities for that year. Construction workers face special challenges in protecting themselves from harm, as they face environmental hazards and use dangerous equipment on a daily basis. Abrasive blasting, exposure to asbestos and chemical fumes, working at heightened elevations, excavation work and dozens of other hazards put construction workers at risk. Aggressive and distracted drivers also pose a risk for construction workers who perform bridge construction and road repair projects.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration indicates that most fatalities occur in the same four categories: electrocution, getting caught between heavy objects, falls and getting struck by objects. Following proper safety precautions and using safety equipment correctly can help prevent fatalities on injuries on the job site.

Construction accidents cause serious financial and emotional hardship for victims and their families.
