Earlier this year, Robert Augeri, 31, was killed by a Mack truck while working on a highway paving project on Interstate 495 in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Two companies involved with the fatal highway accident were cited for safety violations by OSHA.
Augeri’s employer, Brox Industries, of Dracut, was cited on October 30 for failure to make sure that its safety program covered directing traffic in areas where workers were on foot and failure to properly train employees. In November, Brox agreed to correct its violations, and OSHA reduced the fine from $15,000 to $10,000.
On November 7, OSHA cited Lewis Maynard Trucking, of Methuen, for a failure to start and maintain an effective safety program. The companies agreed to correct its violation on December 3 and will pay a reduced fine of $900.
