Federal safety investigation into fall at Rochester high school could take up to six months
As of Monday, police continue to seek an update about the man’s condition, which remains unknown, according to Sgt. Patrick Emerson.
It’s too soon to determine what led to the fall, whether there was any negligence or if any violations are warranted, according to Rose Ohar, area director for OSHA in NH.
Ohar said investigators, who will work with local authorities, will check to see whether OSHA standards were met, whether there were any contributing factors or if there are any other safety violations at the site.
