Yantis Construction Company Worker Fatally Injured at Site in Schertz, Texas


Schertz, TX – A man lost his life in a work-related accident at a construction site on Tuesday.

According to reports, a 40-year-old Hispanic male suffered a fatal injury while on the job.

The man worked for the Yantis Construction Company.

OSHA has been notified.

Thoughts on work-related fatalities

Approximately every 96 minutes, a work-related fatality takes place (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). Workplace deaths occur frequently enough that people sometimes view them as an inevitable aspect of certain industries. However, we must reject this notion and refuse to tolerate the loss of life while individuals are simply trying to earn a living. Every worker deserves the right to fulfill their job duties and return home safely to their loved ones.

Under the OSH Act’s General Duty Clause, employers must maintain a safe workplace free from hazards that could cause serious injury or death. The surviving family of the deceased has the right to know if these safety standards were upheld in this tragic incident.

May more details and facts regarding what happened come to light, allowing us to determine whether any negligence or wrongdoing contributed to this accident.
