Although he is still in shock, he is grateful to have survived, as he and his wife are expecting their first child “While I am relieved that no one was seriously injured today, we have had many recent incidents at the construction site,” he said. Mayor Michelle Wu. “(On Thursday) we are expecting a meeting with unions and construction companies to discuss ways to partner to ensure jobs are safe and avoid any future incidents.” Suffolk Construction said it was working with OSHA, city officials and trade partners to investigate the cause “Out of an abundance of caution, Suffolk has voluntarily closed the 400 Summer Street project site to conduct a comprehensive site review and trade partners’ adherence to strict standards of Suffolk security,” Suffolk said.
