Country duo Sugarland resisted delaying the start of a concert last August at the Indiana State Fair despite threatening weather that later caused a deadly stage collapse, the fair's top official testified in a lawsuit against the company that built the stage rigging.
The company that built the stage ahead of last summer's deadly Indiana State Fair collapse appeared to be indifferent to safety standards, the state Department of Labor said Wednesday.
The company that built the stage ahead of last summer's deadly Indiana State Fair collapse appeared to be indifferent to safety standards and fair officials were too slow to order an evacuation of the grounds, the state Department of Labor said Wednesday.
State fair officials, the stagehands union and a company that built the roof and lights rigging for a massive concert platform all share blame for last summer's deadly stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, according to a government investigation.
Notre Dame will pay a $42,000 fine for six safety violations, make an undisclosed contribution to a memorial for a student videographer who died at football practice and start a campaign on the hazards of scissor lifts as part of a settlement with the state of Indiana.
Indiana regulators fined Notre Dame $77,500 on Tuesday for six safety violations in the October death of a 20-year-old student who was killed when the hydraulic lift he was on toppled over in high winds while he was filming football practice.
The 20-year-old Notre Dame student who was killed when the hydraulic lift he was on fell over as he filmed the football team on a windy day had expressed displeasure about practice being held outside, according to a state report released Tuesday.
The state will announce next week the results of its four-month investigation into the death of a Notre Dame student who died when a hydraulic lift he was atop toppled over while he was filming football practice in October.
Torres agreed that fair officials lacked an adequate evacuation plan and that the decision to evacuate the grandstand was ultimately up to Hoye, the executive director.
State Labor Commissioner Lori Torres said OSHA's report, the first of three independent investigations into the tragedy, was intended to improve workplace safety, not assign blame.
