Strict rules are in place by OSHA for the safety of workers and scaffolding. Guardrails and some harnesses are required to be used by employees when they are above 10 feet. We are trying to determine whether the building company complied with these guidelines.

Captain Jackie Gilmore said that until an investigation is finished, all building work has been put on hold. When this happened, employees on the job either left for home or proceeded to the family unification area. At midnight, the building was empty except for the investigators.

Numerous construction workers were spotted leaving the building in a large group following the disaster, almost an hour after it was reported. Few people expressed any desire to discuss their experiences inside the structure where this all took place. However, when their neighbors discovered what had transpired, they were horrified to realize that such a thing could have happened so close by.

Robert Schuster, a neighbor, stated, “I went to walk my dog, and they wouldn’t allow me to walk the street just outside my house.” “The cop answered, ‘Yeah, somebody fell,’ and that makes you sick. I just asked him. Especially so soon after the New Year.
