Contractor charged in trench cave-in death! (from Detroit Buliding trade mag)

Wayne County Prosecutor's Office brought a charge of involuntary manslaughter against contractor William R. Curtis, Inc. in the April 1, 1999 death of laborer Cameron Cook.

Cook, 24, died in Plymouth when a trench he was working in collapsed as he was laying sewer line. According to the Engineering News Record, William R. Curtis, a co-owner of the company, was operating the excavator digging the trench at the time of the accident.

"Cameron Cook's death in April was a tragedy for his family, his fiance and the community as a whole," said state Sen. Alma Wheeler Smith, whose district includes Cook's Ypsilanti hometown. "The investigation clearly shows that his employer, who was overseeing the excavation that day, needs to be held accountable. I hope that this prosecution will do that and serve as a warning to employers across the state that they are responsible for their workers' safety."

According to Smith's office, a state investigation showed that numerous safety regulations were being violated at the time, including requirements that trenches be shored up and banked, and that excavated materials be kept away from the sides of the trench.

The Construction Safety Division of MIOSHA cited and fined William R. Curtis Inc. $18,000 for violations of state safety rules, but did not find evidence of willful violations. But Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Dave McCreedy told the ENR that that had the contractor "even come close to following safety precautionsthere is almost no doubt that the death would not have occurred."
