There are a lot of details missing about this accident, which is something I've come to expect from OSHA reports. Their report is boiled down into a short sentence that offers no real insight on what happened. This shouldn't be acceptable when someone is hurt or killed on the job. How are we to expect the problem was properly addressed if authorities won't even say what happened?

Perhaps this, like many accidents, was just a tragic, one time thing. It happens, as unfortunate as that may be. However, many work accidents are also the result of working conditions which consistently put employees in danger. If this is the case, then those issues need to be properly addressed. Not only do those affected by the accident deserve answers, but no one should ever have to suffer again for mistakes that were never properly fixed.
