The regional labor authority of Sao Paulo demanded that Fast
Engenharia stop building to make a technical analysis of the
project, the company said in a statement. Fast Engenharia said that
after the analysis it will announce a new time frame for finishing
the temporary stands.
Fabio Hamilton da Cruz died on Saturday after falling 25 feet while
installing floors on the stands, becoming the third construction
worker to perish while working on the Arena Corinthians on the
outskirts of Sao Paulo. Seven workers have died building Brazil's
World Cup stadiums.
The stadium was supposed to be finished in December but the delivery
date was pushed back after two workers were killed in November when
a crane toppled over.
Work has been slow since then and there is concern that safety may
be taking a back seat to haste as workers rush to finish the stadium
