Fire officials say a construction worker was hospitalized after part of a cinder block wall fell on top of him at a work site in Stoughton.
A slab of 15 cinder blocks fell on the 36-year-old man around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday while he was working on a scissor lift at a warehouse in Stoughton.
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration is investigating.
Could measures have been taken to prevent this wall collapse? Were proper safety precautions taken? Did the employer properly train his workers to be prepared for such a situation? Maybe even this was just a complete accident?
Whatever these circumstances might have been...the injured worker should (and will) be compensated for his injuries.
