Learning that the death of a loved one in a Colorado workplace accident could have been prevented would naturally cause overwhelming trauma. A family in another state has to cope with such heartache. A federal investigation into the circumstances of a workplace accident recently revealed that the company's lack of timely action was the reason for a man losing his life after he was fatally injured at work.
A company that produces a large percentage of worldwide titanium requirements is disputing the penalties the Occupational Safety and Health Administration proposed. The fatal accident occurred when a furnace exploded at the plant in March. The lid of a boiler was blown off the hinges in the explosion, and it struck a 27-year-old father of two children against his head. He did not survive the injuries.
