Suffolk Construction halts work on all Boston projects for safety reviews



Work in Suffolk. Construction sites across the city were halted until Friday. The company that made the voluntary decision after four workers were injured on construction sites in the space of just 24 hours closed the workshop for *** a few days to regroup to think about safety, talk to your staff, talk to your team, highlight safety issues. I think it’s the right thing to do. Councilman Ed Flynn said investigators need to take a hard look at what went wrong today. Crews working on this apartment building in South Boston gathered after investigators said a *** worker fell three floors yesterday at the former Edison Power Plant in South Boston being refurbished. Three workers were injured when the floor of *** caved in, immobilizing one of them for more than three hours. The accidents come after *** a man working for another company was killed during the demolition of the Government Center garage. Like many others, I await the results of these investigations because that is what will tell us what we need to do to try to ensure that these things do not happen again in the future. It could take federal investigators some time to determine the causes. But in the meantime, local leaders promise to focus more on worker safety. We need to redouble our efforts to stop for *** minute and think about safety, think about the workers, make sure they are protected and that these four workers are all treated for their injuries, luckily they should all survive
