Lunda under investigation after second crane collapse
OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Safety investigators are allowing contractors to resume work on the Oshkosh bridge where a worker died in a crane collapse last week.
However, as a result of Thursday’s accident, Lunda Construction Co. is now under investigation for its second crane fatality this year.
According to a U.S. Department of Labor spokeswoman, the company is now at risk of being placed in a severe-violator program, which mandates certain compliance inspections.
An Oshkosh Northwestern report says Lunda has received five safety violations since 2009.
A message left with the Black River Falls company Saturday wasn’t immediately returned.
