It's an unfortunate fact that accidents at the workplace can happen at any time...any place.
A construction worker on Marco Island was injured and flown to a Lee County hospital Tuesday after a 1-ton sea wall panel fell and trapped the man and others, according to the Marco Island Fire-Rescue Department.
Firefighters, Marco Island police and Collier County EMS responded to the construction site after the panel slipped off a chain and pinned the workers "in the hole that they were in," Marco Island Fire-Rescue Deputy Chief David Batiato said.
When employees are working on a construction site, it's the responsibility of the employer to ensure that the conditions are safe for workers.
Safety measures must be taken and enforced to provide this safe working environment. When employers cut corners is when accidents can happen...many of which result in serious injuries to employees.
