OSHA is investigating the death of a construction worker who police say was killed when a concrete panel fell on him from an aerial lift in Cleveland.
The worker has been identified as 56-year-old Joseph Matulis, of Akron, Ohio. He was pronounced dead at the construction site at Cleveland State University on Oct. 11.
An OSHA spokesman said Oct. 12 that Matulis was working for a Cleveland company called Coleman Spohn that's involved in work on a building on the campus located on the edge of downtown. The project's general contractor, Rhode Island-based Gilbane Building Company said Oct. 11 that Matulis was a pipefitter.
A police report says the man operating the aerial lift told officers the panel slipped as it was being removed and struck Matulis on the head.
