Arlington — 2 Construction Workers Injured on the Job at Ballpark Development Site
Posted on Thursday, July 18th, 2019 at 1:41 pm by Williams Hart
Shortly before 11AM on Friday, June 14th, two Arlington construction workers were injured on the site of a development project across from Globe Life Field at 1650 E. Randol Mill Rd. Scheduled to be ready for the 2020 season, the new Texas Rangers’ stadium is now over halfway complete and will house up to 41,000 guests.
Authorities report that both workers were treated at the scene for non-life threatening injuries before being taken to nearby hospitals.
No further details were provided. The investigation remains ongoing.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, out of 4,674 worker fatalities in private industries in 2017, 20.7% were in construction. The leading causes of construction industry deaths and injuries are falls, followed by struck by an object, electrocution, and caught-in/between equipment or objects.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that eliminating these ‘fatal four’ leading causes of construction worker injuries would save 582 workers’ lives in America every year.
