Construction Site ViolationsOne example of construction sites not following proper safety procedures with disastrous results has just occurred at a Queens construction site. On Tuesday, March, 13, a 34-year-old man was killed when he was crushed against a wall by a forklift. He died at the scene of the accident.
The brother-in-law of the deceased worker stated that he had been told numerous times by the worker that he was concerned to go to work because of how dangerous it was to work there. In fact, since September the jobsite had received several safety violations and stop work orders. The man is survived by his brother-in-law and two sisters who live in Jamaica, Queens.
