Construction sites can be found all over Beaver and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. These sites are required to follow the labor laws of not only the state but also the federal laws in place from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). When construction accidents happen they tend to be tragic, either severely injuring or killing workers.
