    I suspect it will come out that several safety precautions were not being met on the jobsite, which has led to yet another death that could have been prevented.

    OSHA will go in, find out exactly what happened, and if it was due to bad planning, a lack of safety checks and safety equipment, and so on, it will be used to further educate and protect workers at the next jobsite.

    OSHA is a vital part of our growing economy. With so much emphasis on “America First” and infrastructure spending (which I am all for, as long as infrastructure means electrical grid, roads and highways, public rail, internet bandwidth and security, etc), OSHA’s budget should increase significantly. Unfortunately, it is to be cut in the forthcoming fiscal year. Safety will take a backseat to growth, profits, and efficiency, and people will lose their lives and/or their health.
