    Fall exposes job's hazards - By Todd C. Frankel, ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    It's dangerous working on a bridge, dozens if not hundreds of feet above water. At best, you have a rope or a net to save you.

    Falls are the leading cause of death for construction workers. The cause could be lost footing on a house roof or a dramatic drop from a radio tower hundreds of feet high.

    Bridges pose a special risk, especially if they span water waiting to swallow an ironworker or electrician or painter who missteps and perhaps gets carried off by a swift current.
