New Hampshire Construction Worker Severely Injured On The Job

A New Hampshire construction worker was injured on the job after being run over by a tractor.

A New Hampshire construction worker was injured while working when a tractor ran over his foot and ankle on October 27, according to the Lowell Sun.

The 24-year-old man was paving an area of land when the incident occurred, leaving him with severe injuries. Though he and the driver of the tractor had been in communication while working together, the tractor ended up unexpectedly traveling forward.

The incident is currently being investigated by the New Hampshire OSHA office. This construction injury is a contrast to New York City’s recent report of a 20% drop in workplace injuries in the industry.

Information on OSHA’s guidelines for safety in the construction industry can be found at osha.gov.
