Stadium Worker Hurt in Scaffolding Accident
August 5, 2015
In early July, a scaffolding accident took place at the Atlanta Falcon’s
new stadium construction near the intersection of Mangum and Mitchell
streets. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, is
investigating whether a workplace violation occurred. According to an
Atlanta police spokesperson, the worker suffered a severe head injury.
The Holder, Hunt, HJ Russell and CD Moody construction companies issued
a statement saying the worker was hurt during “scaffolding removal.”
The Falcons’ new stadium is being built just to the south of the
Georgia Dome where the team currently plays. Construction began last May
and is expected to finish for the 2017 NFL season.
