September 25 - October 1, 2016

Last month, a painter fell to his death on a water tower job, working for a firm with numerous safety violations and falls in its history. What more can be done to prevent such tragedies?


Companies with a number of repeat safety violations should have their licenses revoked; fines are clearly not a deterrent to unsafe practices.
Fines for repeat offenders should be greater, and companies with multiple violations should be monitored more closely to ensure their safety culture changes.
Unfortunately, there's not much we can do; some workers simply don't follow safety rules, and sometimes the consequences are tragic.
