The Occupational Health and Safety Administration was formally established by Congress in the 1970s to help promote safe work environments for workers in Illinois and across the country. OHSA may be requested to investigate the safety of work environments by employees or employers, and the federal agency performs mandatory investigations when serious construction workers' accidents occur. Sadly, OHSA is investigating the death of a construction worker in another state.
Workers were in the process of rebuilding a warehouse when the accident occurred. The warehouse was part of a property belonging to a plumbing supply company. The worker was attempting to replace some large four-by-four foot skylights on the roof when he fell through the roof and onto the ground.
