On April 1st, 2015, a worker was smoothing concrete on the sixth floor of a building.  He was working, without a harness, on an unprotected edge.  The worker fell to his death.  This company has several previous warnings about violating fall protection regulations.

 On Monday, the owner of the construction company was indicted for manslaughter.  He faces 15 years in prison.  This shows how important safety is, not only for the employees, but for management.  Willful violations of OSHA safety regulations can put you in jail.
