It’s news an employer never wants to deliver.
“I’m sorry, but your spouse (or partner, child, or other family member) had an accident at work and unfortunately passed away.”
But it happens. In fact, according to OSHA it’s happened 357 times already this year.
Indeed, it happened just yesterday, at Cleveland State University. A piece of sheet metal fell and killed a construction worker.
