Michigan company issued four citations after accident

New information has been released about a fatal construction accident that occurred in Michigan in the summer after a trench collapsed.

The accident occurred on September 29 when a 58-year-old man was working for an excavating company and the eight foot trench he was working in collapsed on top of him. He was buried up to his neck and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Inspectors from Michigan’s Occupational Safety and Health Division have  issued four serious citations against C. Johnson and Son Excavating. The company was cited for not properly supporting the trench, not having inspections done on the site, and because the worker was not wearing the appropriate injury prevention gear.
