Construction worker in critical condition after injury at Rumpke recycling facility

Columbus, Ohio —  A construction worker is in critical condition after sustaining injuries at a Rumpke recycling facility. The incident happened on Tuesday afternoon in Columbus.

According to reports, the worker was not a Rumpke employee but was involved in a project at the recycling facility.

No further information has been provided.

Thoughts on  work-related accidents

Construction work is such a dangerous job. In fact, construction workers have the highest rate of job-related fatalities across all industries. This cannot be considered the norm: we must do more to protect our workers.

While the specifics of what transpired in the Rumpke recycling facility remain unclear, we do know that it’s all too common for accidents of this nature to stem from human error and a lack of safety procedures and oversight by employers.

A thorough investigation led by trained professionals will help determine whether this incident could have been avoided and whether any wrongdoing took place.

Our hope is that the worker makes a complete recovery.
