I'm waiting for OSHA to start auditing training records and staffing records and other indicators of sloppy practices.

Anyone in the trade have any insights as to why? Too rushed? Too many new guys and gals? Cutting corners for budget?

When I see "construction mishap" I think of a delivery falling off the back of truck and blocking a road. I do not think of a worker being crushed by heavy blocks of stone.
