Thanksgiving Tower Claims Workers' Lives

Coy Clark Dec. 14, 2014

Last week we heard the tragic news of the fire at the Thanksgiving Tower that claimed the lives of three workers. Tasked with cleaning a water storage tank, the workers descended into a tank with one way in and one way out.

As they began work, a fire broke out and they were reportedly overcome with smoke. As OSHA and other entities continue their investigations more light should be shed on exactly what happened. 

This type of incident is highly unfortunate and will hopefully be treated with the utmost importance by the parties involved. As Dallas and surrounding cities find themselves booming with business, construction, and renovations the standards that companies operate will need to be continually upheld and monitored. 

workplaceNot only will workers need to give a great deal of attention to following safety guidelines, but companies performing renovations and construction projects will need to ensure a safe work environment for all employees.
