Yet another victim at work in Lombardy. Girolamo Tartaglione, 31 years old, originally from Foggia but living in Cremona, died this morning in Pontevico, in the Brescia area. It all happened too quickly at 7.30, at the beginning of the shift. The boy was in the Eural Gnutti Spa plant, a company in via Mattei in the hamlet of Chiesuola that produces semi-finished aluminum products. In an instant, a fifty quintal plate that had detached from the ceiling collapsed on him. His colleagues immediately raised the alarm, but the rescuers, the firefighters and the carabinieri could only ascertain his death.

This is the third fatal accident in three days. Omar Ait Youssef, resident in Mondovì but originally from Morocco, on Tuesday 30 August fell from eight meters high while working on the arrangement of a rockfall net in Averara, in the Bergamo area, and died yesterday at the Pope John XXIII hospital from his injuries. On Wednesday 31 August, however, the worker Abderrazzak Bouchkaraun (59 years old, Moroccan origins and living in Gavirate) died stuck in a machine in the shed of Tecnofilo Srl, a company in Malgesso that produces metal grills for household appliances.

Also counting the case of Mohamed Chahir, a 28-year-old Maghrebi resident in Orzinuovi who in the early afternoon of Thursday 18 August was overwhelmed and killed by a slab that was unhooked from an overhead crane in the Tomasoni Meccaniche company in Borgo San Giacomo, we are facing a massacre at work. The Lombard data speak for themselves: 94 deaths at work since the beginning of the year, with over 84,000 reports of accidents. Including today’s one in Filago, in the province of Bergamo, where a 34-year-old worker suffered trauma to the chest and abdomen because he was hit by a heavy vehicle inside the Lodotruck company.
