Sadly, another construction death on the U-M campus (UPDATED 1:37PM)

A construction worker fell five stories to his death this morning at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business. This is the second death this year at a construction site on U-M property. Last February, a worker died in a fall at the U-M Museum of Art site.

Hopefully a full investigation is done. In the tragic February fall the Michigan branch of OSHA fined the masonry company some 60K for knowingly disregarding proper safety procedures.

Update: (AP) 31-year-old David J. Smith of Jackson fell down an empty elevator shaft about 6:30 a.m. Monday. He worked for Schindler Elevator Corp.
