Donald Trump ran an unprecedented and unpredictable campaign, which is carrying into the early days of his administration. With campaign promises to ease the burden on businesses while decreasing regulations, it's fair to assume that OSHA will be affected by the incoming president.

Construction worker injured at work when he fell into trench

Whenever excavations take place on construction sites in Colorado or elsewhere, all workers are at risk. It is the responsibility of construction company owners to ensure all safety precautions are in place to prevent circumstances that can lead to workers being injured at work.

It is what happens to the body of the person dangling at the end of the lanyard that can lead to his or her death.
