Four workers who were working on a five-story parking garage in Doral, Fla. were found dead after the building collapsed on Oct. 10. The fourth fatally injured worker was found on Oct. 16.
Media reports have stated – without certainty of whether it was the root of the accident or not – that a crane struck the garage a few days prior to the collapse.
The President and CEO of Ajax Building Corp. along with the project’s contractor have pledged to find the cause of the tragedy.
“When the investigative process commences, we want to work alongside OSHA’s investigators to secure the site and make it safe,” William Byrne, president of Ajax Building Corp. said in an Oct. 12 statement. He stressed that Ajax Building Corp. has 54 years of experience and maintains “core values based on quality, safety and family.”
