The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) regional director says an overextended crane triggered a truck to hang off the Sakonnet River Bridge last August, based on The Newport Daily News.
On Aug. 29, workers on the Sakonnet River Bridge were checking the bridge spanning Portsmouth and also Tiverton the time the crane tipped, making two employees hanging in a bucket over the bridge. Both workers were rescued and no one was seriously injured,tutuapp however the accident led to the bridge’s momentary closure as well as massive traffic jams.
The truck tipped over because the boom was extended beyond its capacity, which compromised the vehicle, according to Griffin. “Basically, it was the limits that failed to operate correctly,” Griffin told The Daily News on Thursday. “It (should not) have reached as far as it did.”
The Providence office delivered a notice lately to contractor AECOM in California as well as N.E. Bridge Contractors of Newton, MA, yet not any of the company will be charged, based on article.
