Too few bolts connecting horizontal steel support beams with vertical steel columns was the cause of January’s construction accident at Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati, according to the report of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Thirteen employees of Jostin Concrete Construction were injured Jan. 27 when the floor on which they were pouring concrete collapsed, sending them 25 feet to the ground in a slurry of wet concrete. OSHA cited six firms for alleged violations in the case and proposed fines of $108,220.
