Two of the four construction workers injured after falling from a balcony while working on the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown, St James, are back out to work, says Roger Gall, safety and health manager at Rotherley Construction Inc.Gall said that while the men were “all improving”, “two are still at home receiving therapy”. They are expected to be back on the job by September or October.Addressing the issue of safety on the job, Gall stated: “We did all we could have done because the incident was unforeseen. We have a safety programme, so we do all in our power to make sure everyone is safe.”Gall further said that contrary to reports carried in the Press, the sign involved in the accident was not a 400-pound one. It actually weighed less than 200 pounds, he said.One of the workers, Kenny Ash, who sustained mainly head injuries, is happy to be back on the job although he is “still getting headaches and much pain”.
