Description

National Engineering & Co., a construction company in Ohio, came under fire in the early 1990s after recording eight worker deaths in 12 years. This rate was three and one-half times the construction industry's national average. In 1992, they were overseeing the construction of the Main Avenue Bridge, even though they had paid numerous legal settlements, including one to the family of a mother and daughter who died after a temporary bridge built by National collapsed as they were driving over it.
