Two men were killed at a utility construction site in another state recently when the aerial basket they were suspended in crashed, plummeting 140 feet to the ground. Both men were under contract with the company to work on high tension power lines. The cause of the fatal accident is currently under investigation.
The safety of the work conditions have come under scrutiny. The company has been fined three times by OSHA since 2005. Two of the violations were for substandard aerial lifts.
