Commentary on Grady Scott Wilson Electrocution Accident in Orange

It's not entirely clear what happened here, including what the victim was actually doing at the time. But if folks think we just have to wait for OSHA to look into things, they may find that's not good enough. Their priorities are to find fineable offenses, not necessarily to help the victim's loved ones. Their investigations can also take up to 18 months. There are crucial questions that require immediate close attention, so that kind of wait just isn't acceptable.

What was the victim doing? Who did he work for? Was the electricity supposed to be off? Have there been other incidents on this job site or with the companies involved? Was there proper supervision? Was the victim trained? Were they given proper safety equipment? Was this the mistake of a co-worker or someone from another company? At the end of the day, if investigators aren't asking these questions, the incident would likely be better off in the hands of professionals who will.
