Osha To Investigate Tunnel Death

Twenty four years after worker died inside Tunnel, OSHA investigators were on the site, trying to determine exactly what happened. The nearby store employee still remembers moments after the worker.

The man who died worked for around nine years at Tunneling Company. On Wednesday flags at the company headquarters flew half-staff. The company’s president said that the crews build tunnels under the highway which were supposed to be different.

One crew member was in the tunnel with others having a massive storm unleashed under a torrent of water with really no warning. A flood event occurred with another penetrated into the ground with excavation.
The tunneling is dangerous with his company taking safety seriously. A check with OSHA revealed that the company has been investigating 4 times in last 10 years with
one the following year.

The latest investigation revealed that this could take around 6 months to complete and this is likely to give the answer of what went wrong. After going through self investigation of 24 hours, what we do wrong and what different can be done so that it never happen again is a question which needs to discussed.
