A floor collapsed at a Cincinnati, Ohio casino construction site at the end of January, injuring 13 workers and causing project management, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and city safety inspectors to shut down the site to investigate. Luckily only one worker was injured seriously, with the others suffering relatively minor injuries. Work resumed on unaffected portions of the casino within a few days and the collapsed portion was later demolished.

It is worth noting that this is the second casino collapse in Ohio in recent months. The first occurred in Cleveland, where a garage deck collapsed. The projects—both run by a joint venture between Rock Gaming, LLC, and Caesars Entertainment, Inc.—have a combined value of $1 billion. They used different structural systems and different project management companies, so it is assumed they are not related.  The collapse at the Cincinnati job site occurred when workers were pouring concrete onto steel decking. The Cleveland garage was made of reinforced concrete construction.
