OSHA Investigating Construction Accident at Arts Center

Last Friday afternoon, a scaffolding collapse injured two workers in what could have been a much more serious accident, according to a veteran firefighter responding to the construction accident.

Construction workers were repairing the façade of the Kravis Center for the Performing Art, which was damaged during Hurricane Francis in 2004. The fire rescue captain said the anchors attaching the scaffolding to the wall way around 1pm last Friday afternoon. Close to two dozen construction workers were in the vicinity when the seven levels scaffolding came tumbling down, which could have resulted in major injuries.

Fortunately, there were no serious injuries, though two workers sustained minor injuries. OSHA will investigate the construction accident.
