The widow of a factory worker who died while cleaning machinery has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against her husband’s employer, claiming unsafe equipment and inadequate training led to his death in June, 2014.
The man climbed inside the machine to begin cleaning between two large steel molds. Another employee, not knowing he was inside, turned on the machine. The molds were brought together, crushing the man to death. He also left behind six children.
The woman said she thought the company would do the right thing. Now she questions whether enough is being done to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. The lawsuit claims that intentional acts and omissions by the company caused the man’s death. The suit claims that the company did not equip the machine with a safety gate to prevent an employee from entering the point of operation and failed to develop lockout procedures for injection molding machines. Furthermore, workers were not adequately trained in lockout procedures and there was no system in place to confirm there was not a worker inside the injection molding machine before it was turned on, according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff seeks more than $25,000 in damages.
