SAO PAULO, Brazil -- A safety engineer at the World Cup stadium where a giant crane collapse killed two workers allegedly warned his supervisor of possible problems with the operation, only to have his concerns brushed aside, a labour union leader charged Thursday, as sniping over the accident heated up. The incident has fed worries about Brazils capacity to host next years showcase tournament, as well as the 2016 Olympics, though authorities insist they will be ready for both. Sao Paulos Arena Corinthians was slated to be completed by the end of December, and workers have suggested that speed was a top priority on the construction site, with many working 12-hour shifts and skipping vacations. The stadium was initially scheduled to be part of the Confederations Cup earlier this year, but world footballs governing body FIFA scrapped the venue from the warm-up tournament because of financing problems before construction even started. Antonio de Sousa Ramalho, president of Sao Paulos civil industry workers association, told The Associated Press in a phone interview that supervisors pressed ahead with the operation to finish the roof despite several rainy days that soaked the soil. He said the engineer warned his supervisor that it appeared the ground was not stable enough to support the 500-ton piece of roofing. "To his surprise, he was told by the supervisor that nothing was wrong and work should continue," said Ramalho, who declined to provide the workers name for fear of possible reprisals. "They discussed the matter for a while but in the end the supervisors decision stood." Odebrecht, the powerful Brazilian construction company behind the stadium project and three other World Cup venues, strongly denied the claims, and a civil defence official said an initial inspection of the construction site a day after the accident showed no evidence the ground was unstable. "Odebrecht and Sport Club Corinthians clarify that there was no warning previous to the accident," the statement said. The company added that Ramalhos union does not represent most of the workers involved in the crane operation. Following a visit to the site Thursday, the civil defence official in charge of the inspection said there were no obvious signs that the ground was unstable. "When we looked at it, it didnt seem like the ground shifted, maybe just a few millimeters," Jair Paca de Lima said in a television interview. "Maybe after an analysis with the equipment we will know more." According to Brazilian media reports, investigators are also looking into human or mechanical error as possible reasons for the collapse. Lima said only the area where the accident happened will remain closed, but work can resume at most of the stadium as soon as Monday, when a three-day mourning period ends. Constructors will be allowed to clear the crane and the metal structure after getting clearance from civil defence authorities, which is expected to happen soon. The labour ministry later Thursday said constructors were prohibited from using the other nine cranes at the site until they can show "safety measures are in place and there is no more risk of accidents." Ramalho, the union leader, said workers had been pulling long hours for quite some time in an effort to get the stadium completed on time, a point confirmed Thursday by loader Sergio Almeida, who told the AP typical shifts were 12 to 13 hours long. Besides the Sao Paulo stadium, Odebrecht was involved in construction of the Fonte Nova stadium in Salvador and the Arena Pernambuco in Recife, both of which were delivered for this years Confederations Cup. It also renovated Rio de Janeiros Maracana Stadium, which will host the World Cup final. A small part of the roof at Arena Fonte Nova collapsed in May from weight of accumulated water from heavy rainstorm. At the time, officials denied any structural problems with the project and blamed a mistake by a worker who inspected the roof. FIFA said earlier Thursday it was waiting to learn more about the extent of the damage from Wednesdays accident. FIFA officials and other global soccer personalities are due in Brazil next week for the high-profile World Cup draw in the resort city of Costa do Sauipe. FIFA leaders have said repeatedly that there is no Plan B for next years tournament -- particularly since nearly 1 million tickets to the matches have already been sold. "It is too premature to make any detailed assessment on the situation of the Corinthians Arena as we are still awaiting the technical report to be able to evaluate the scale of the damage," FIFA said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. "We will be able to provide an update earliest next week following the FIFA Organizing Committee of the FIFA World Cup." Jose Maria Marin, the president of the local World Cup organizing committee, said he lamented the accident but was confident it would not significantly affect the opener in Sao Paulo on June 12. "Im certain that the stadium will be ready for the start of the World Cup," he told Brazilian media.

The 2006 NL MVP fielded grounders while sitting on a stool Thursday and wasnt wearing the protective boot on the field for the first time since a setback three weeks ago. "Its good to be out of a boot. Im excited," Howard said. "Im trying to make little miniature goals. The first goal is to get out of the boot. Goal achieved." Howard had a procedure Feb. 27 to remove an infection around his surgically repaired left Achilles tendon. He was cleared to start light exercises in a boot last week. On Wednesday, he got the OK to shed the boot. Its still uncertain when the three-time All-Star first baseman will return to the Philadelphia Phillies lineup, and its possible he could miss at least the first two months. "Well see," Howard said. "The whole big thing has been to make sure everything is healed up and that everything is 100 per cent. Just to make sure we dont have any setbacks or any reoccurrences of anything. So just taking those precautions." Howard ruptured his Achilles making the final out of last season in a 1-0 loss to St. Louis in Game 5 of the NL division series. The slugger batted .253 with a team-high 33 homers and 116 RBIs last yeear.dddddddddddd But he was 2 for 19 (.105) with a homer and six RBIs in the NL division series against the Cardinals. Howard acknowledged he probably wont have 100 per cent of the strength back in his injured leg for another year, but he wants to play as soon as possible. "If Im capable of going out there and playing, Im gonna go out there and do the best that I can," he said. The Phillies also are without five-time All-Star second baseman Chase Utley. He left camp earlier in the week to see a specialist about chronic problems with both knees and still hasnt returned. Its uncertain when Utley will play this season. Howard and Utley are the Nos. 3-4 hitters on a team that has won five straight NL East titles and is looking for its second World Series championship since 2008. "Im not worried about the team. This isnt the first set of injuries that weve had; its not going to be the last," Howard said. "Weve dealt with injuries over the last three, four years. Weve never been that team to make excuses. Weve got a lot of capable guys. People want to look at it how they want to look at it, but weve got a great group of guys and it all starts here in spring training, they can go out, hold it down and get the job done."
