Worker Suffers Severe Head Trauma in Cohasset Construction Accident

A 50-year-old construction worker from Plymouth was seriously injured on Wednesday morning after falling from a 25-foot-high scaffold. The scaffold accident occurred at a waterfront construction site in Cohasset, Massachusetts, where three workers were installing siding to restore several buildings.

An emergency call came in at 11:23am and the injured foreman was airlifted to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where he was in critical condition according to police. He reportedly suffered severe head injuries.

The construction accident is being investigated by an inspector from the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration to determine if proper fall-protection equipment was used. According to a spokesman for OSHA, work being performed at more than 6 feet generally requires guardrails or the wearing of safety harnesses.
