Clifford Haney Killed in Work Accident in Prosper, TX

Prosper, TX -- August 12, 2022, Clifford Haney was killed due to an accident where he fell while working along Highbridge Lane.

OSHA did not give much information about the accident, though they identified the company involves as L&S Mechanical. It appears Haney was on the job along the 160 block of Highbridge Lane. Due to series of events unclear, Clifford Haney fell from an attic. This resulted in fatal injuries.

While OSHA didn't offer further specifics in their summary, they did list an alleged violation. That alleged violation concerns the standard relating to having rails and other restraints to help prevent falls. So why does OSHA believe that was a factor here? Were there safety measures in place? Were they implement incorrectly? Who was in charge of putting those measures in place? Was the victim working for a company that didn't have the safety of their employees in mind?

This is what I mean when I talk about OSHA rarely telling the whole story. They tend to have one priority: recommend fines. If they're able to get a family the answers they need, it's usually a coincidence that their interests aligned with the family's. Hopefully that happened here behind the scenes, but if OSHA is only telling the family the sparse details they're giving the public, there's likely a whole lot more to this story.
