1 29 CFR 1926 SUBPART Q CONCRETE AND MASONRY CONSTRUCTION
2 w 51 killed w 170 feet above ground w Entire form peeled away from newly placed concrete Cooling Tower St. Mary’s West Virginia 1978
3 What the St. Mary’s West Virginia tower would have looked like if it had been completed.
4 Jump forms atop the St. Mary’s structure tore loose, pulling work platforms and concrete down inside the tower.
5 Wreckage 168 feet below the top of the St. Mary’s tower being picked apart by investigators looking for clues. The state of West Virginia objected to the site being cleaned before it could make its own full investigation.
