Illinois electrician dies when mobile trailer falls and crushes him
A 58-year-old Illinois electrician’s first day on the job custom trailers and specialty vehicles manufacturing plant ended in his tragic death. He was killed after the absence of safety pins in two hydraulic leg stands and the inability to use stationary jacks caused a mobile medical trailer to fall and crush him.
The United States Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Monee-based Advanced Mobility by Kentucky Trailer on Monday, October 17 for one serious safety violation. In other words, the OSHA determined the company violated the general duty clause after it concluded its probe on the July 5, 2016 fatality.
