BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Federal workplace safety officials have completed their investigation into the death of a road construction worker who was killed near Boulder when a truck involved in flood repair backed over him.
The Daily Camera reports (https://goo.gl/6W7LnQ ) Greeley-based Duran Excavating was ordered to pay about $3,800 in penalties for what the Occupational Safety and Health Administration deemed as “other than serious” violations stemming from the Oct. 17 death of 46-year-old Nicolas Arrendondo-Uribe.
Arrendondo-Uribe was killed as crews were repaving an area of Lefthand Canyon Drive that was damaged during the 2013 floods.
OSHA says the company didn’t ensure that there were appropriate personnel trained in first aid and did not establish a suitable method for contacting emergency medical services where cell and landline telephone services were not available.
