According to the U.S. Department of Labor website, five planned OSHA inspections for Beam Construction yielded no violations.
OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) officials are investigating the construction site, and the investigation can take anywhere from a few weeks to six months, depending on the complexity of the accident.
During their investigation, OSHA will be looking to see if fall protection was provided for employees on scaffolds higher than 10 feet, if load limits were observed, and if the scaffolds were inspected by a “competent person.”
