Ever Thought About Lifting Equipment?

Apr 18, 2017


The basket holding Powell and Hodgson fell, killing both men. Cal-OSHA cited Powells employer, Disney Construction, with serious violations in relation to the accident in November 2014 and fined the company $106,110. Yolo County prosecutors also charged Mark Powell with two felony counts of violating occupational safety or health standards causing death. Dive Insight: In addition to what Cal-OSHA characterized as a "long list of mechanical deficiencies,"the agency said in its report of the incident that the basket used to lift Powell and Hudson did not have a working safety latch. According to Cal-OSHA inspectors, Disney supervisors failed to inspect the crane and personnel lifting equipment, which they determined was the root cause of the accident. Yolo County joins other jurisdictions in pursuing criminal action for incidents that might have once been chalked up to the dangerous nature of the construction business. The most high-profile case last year was that of New York City general contractor Harco Construction . In April 2015, 22-year-old worker Carlos Moncayo, an employee of subcontractor Sky Materials Corporation, was killed in an excavation collapse on a Harco job. Prosecutors charged Harco with criminally negligent homicide and manslaughter, and the company was ultimately convicted and sentenced to pay a fine of $10,000. In addition, Sky foreman Wilmer Cueva was sentenced to a maximum of three years in prison for ignoring safety warnings prior to the cave-in, and Harco supervisor Alfonso Prestia was sentenced to community service and probation. Sky Materials has not yet been tried. After the Moncayo death, concerned with construction safety and other industry issues amidst a New York City building boom, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance established the Construction Fraud Task Force to investigate safety violations and other incidences of possible malfeasance.
