Indiana Construction Worker Killed at IPL Eagle Valley Project
Indiana Construction Worker killed at IPL Eagle Valley Project on March 2, 2016. Rickey Brewer of Danville Indiana was killed while working on the IPL gas turbine power station near Martinsville yesterday. He worked for Chicago Bridge and Iron, a contractor building the power station. It appears he was killed when struck by a motor vehicle and pinned between the vehicle and a trailer. Unfortunately such accidents are too common on construction sites, despite being IOSHA and OSHA violations to allow workers to be exposed to “pinch points” near moving machinery, including motor vehicles. Your Indiana Construction accident lawyer has handled, and is handling, many such cases, all of which could have been avoided if safety was properly managed on the construction site. The “hurry up and get it done” often wins over construction site safety, and appears to claim another Indiana construction worker victim.
