It doesn't say if the guy was wearing a hard hat or not. Over the years I se rules tighten on construction sites. I have delivered loads to construction sites & had to provide my own hard hat & steel toe boots. No problem from me as I also had this stuff available. I did go to a site once where I was paid for a days detainment because they brought in a work crew from job service to hand unload the trailer. It was a Union work site & when the job seekers showed up with no safety shoes or hard hats, they were thrown off the property. I had to hang around until they could assemble a work crew with the proper PPE, to unload me. It was against the Union Rules for me "The Truck Driver" to unload myself, even though I had the proper PPE. Oh well. RIP Construction Worker. Your finally off to a better place.
