Onlookers watch in awe over Innerbelt Bridge demolition
WKYC-TV
Sparks rained down onto the Cuyahoga River like fireworks, as workers were tearing down a section of the old Innerbelt Bridge in Ohio. A steady stream of onlookers took pause — to watch the demolition of an era in Cleveland travel. They stood along University Road in the Tremont neighborhood, behind Sokolowki's Inn, to observe the action. "It's really cool," said Heather Harris, of Solon, who works downtown. "It's really cool to see the new bridge behind it, and see the workers taking down the old bridge to make way for a new one."

Safety pays, falls cost
EHS Today
Falls are the leading cause of death in the construction industry, and they accounted for 12 percent of all occupational injuries in 2012. In an effort to prevent these injuries and fatalities through education and outreach, OSHA launched the 2014 Fall Safety Stand-Down, which ran from June 2-6. An estimated 1 million workers and 25,000 businesses, including construction industry leaders, halted their work for one hour during that week to discuss the importance of recognizing fall hazards and implementing fall safety measures.

Renovate or demolish? A look back at efforts in Amherst County
Amherst New Era-Progress via Lynchburg News & Advance
Optimistic visions of revitalizing the Amherst Train Depot project in Virginia have been derailed through escalating costs, and an old school building on Phelps Road in Madison Heights has been a painful lesson in poor planning. Amherst county's failed or financially bloated attempts at historic renovation now are influencing how the county's board of supervisors approach other rehabilitation projects, such as requests by a volunteer group to salvage the former Amherst Baptist Church. The fate of the former church appears to be sealed following a recent vote by supervisors for the structure's eventual demolition.

Portland industrial demolition contractors safety tip: Watch for falling objects
Elder Demolition
Any given demolition/construction site is rife with hazards. As industrial demolition contractors, safety is our first priority. Today we're taking a look at a specific type of construction hazard: Unsecured objects. An unsecured object is anything that could fall over—in other words, any item that isn't tied down or otherwise held in place. Glass, structural elements and even utility lines can be considered unsecured objects. As unsecured objects often seem innocuous, contractors must be especially vigilant in looking out for potential dangers on the job.
