When an out-of-service crane collapsed on top of a local Dallas apartment building during an overnight storm in 2019, one person was killed and many others were injured. Bigge Crane & Rigging, one of the largest and longest-established companies in the industry, made a statement that the crane collapsed due to reported storm winds that reached 75mph on the night of the accident.
Just 8 days after the toppled crane ripped through the Elan City Lights apartment building, another storm overturned a crane located in a residential neighborhood in Irving, TX. Officials stated that high storm winds, again, caused the crane to tip over. Fortunately no injuries were reported.
In the aftermath of these incidences, experts have started a conversation on what could, and should, have been done to prevent them.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas had the highest number of fatal work accidents in 2016. One in five of those fatalities were construction site accidents, with 64% of those related to the “Fatal Four”.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration identified the leading causes of construction industry deaths and injuries as: falls, struck-by an object, electrocution, and caught-in/between equipment or objects--otherwise known as the “Fatal Four”.
After an individual is diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, there may be different types of doctors involved with the treatment process, including: medical oncologist, hematologist, radiation oncologist, or a bone marrow transplant doctor. There are many other specialists that may be on the treatment team like nurses and physician assistants.
Choosing a treatment method is a big decision, and consulting with a doctor is imperative to your recovery process. When discussing treatment options, it’s important to set goals, ask questions, and outline any possible side effects with the medical team to determine which is the best course of action for a Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma diagnosis.
After an individual is diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the medical team will determine if it has spread and, if so, how far. The stage of a cancer indicates how much cancer is in the body, how serious it is, and how to treat it. This process is called staging. Gathering staging information can include a physical exam, blood tests, biopsies, imaging tests, and a lumbar puncture (spinal tap). In general, imaging tests such as PET or CT scans are the most important when determining the stage of NHL in a patient.
