Aug 29, 1907: Seventy-five workers die when the lower St. Lawrence River’s Quebec Bridge collapses while under construction. A flawed design was found to be the cause. Thirteen more workers were killed nine years later when the reconstructed bridge’s central span was being raised and fell into the river because of a problem with hoisting devices.

Decades in the making, the proposal to set new limits on workers' exposure to harmful silica has languished since February 2011 at the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB), where officials say it is under review…Drafted by OSHA, the proposal would limit construction and maritime workers' exposure to crystalline silica, a common element in the earth's crust. Silica dust is often released during jackhammering or other activities involving heavy machinery at construction sites and shipyards.
