It has been revealed that a fatal construction site in Missouri had been subject to fines for safety violations prior to the collapse of a trench that killed two people.
The safety violations were issued last November due to the lack of a safety net provided for workers who were working on a 24-foot high steeped roof. It is not known at this time whether or not the trench violated safety regulations.
The owner of the construction company refused to comment on the situation, referring all questions to the subcontractor that hired the workers. If the investigation concludes that there were safety violations resulting in the death of the two employees, both the contractor and subcontractor could be held liable.
