OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - A contractor from Oshkosh has been cited in the death of a worker last fall at a paper recycling plant in Virginia.
CR Meyer and Sons of Oshkosh and ST Tissue of Franklin Virginia are both challenging citations issued by Virginia’s Labor and Industry department.
38-year-old James Denny III of Fayetteville North Carolina died after he was hit by an overhead crane last October at the recycling facility in Franklin.
The Virginian-Pilot recently obtained the citations. They said the crane’s operator was not trained to run the machine.
Also, the operator apparently could not see where the crane was going at the time.
CR Meyer faces $70,000 in penalties. ST Tissue faces $32,000 in fines.
