Arizona Building and Construction Trades Council


PHOENIX (May 15, 2024) – A Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) spokesman informed the Arizona Building Trades of a tragic incident that occurred earlier today at the TSMC job site. TSMC reported that there has been a fatality involving a worker.

While details are still being investigated, it appears that the worker was involved in an explosion from a chemical truck he was driving. We are unaware at this time if immediate medical attention was administered on-site, but unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries.

The Arizona Building Trades extends our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of the deceased worker. The safety and well-being of construction workers are our top priorities, and we expect all regulatory agencies to conduct a thorough investigation into the incident. The goal should be to determine whether adequate safety measures were in place, the cause of the accident, and to implement any necessary measures to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future.

We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
