Worker injured at construction site

Jul 9, 2009  

A man working as a subcontractor at the Ohio University's Academic & Research Center construction site was injured this morning when he fell to the ground while setting up scaffolding. 

The Phoenix Masonry employee was taken to O'Bleness Memorial Hospital in Athens. His medical condition is not known at this time.

Mark Setterlin, executive vice president of R.W. Setterlin Building Company of Columbus, which is the lead contractor on the building project, said his company is conducting a full investigation of the accident. He said the company will submit the final accident report to the appropriate authorities, including Ohio University and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Construction on the $30 million, 100,000-square-foot Academic & Research Center is scheduled to be completed in October. The state-of-the-art building will serve as a hub for the university's emerging research and education collaborations between medicine, science and engineering.
