SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - California safety officials have issued more than $50,000 in fines against an elevator company whose employee was killed while working at the new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara.
The state's Division of Occupational Safety and Health cited Schindler Elevator Corporation on Tuesday for three serious violations, including its alleged failure to enclose counterweights in freight elevators with required guards. Sixty-three-year-old mechanic Don White was killed on June 11 by an elevator counterweight.
State officials also said Schindler Elevator failed to ensure that the elevator wouldn't activate while a worker was in the danger zone.
A call to the company was not immediately returned.
White was the first of two workers to die while working on the new $1.2 billion stadium. The stadium is slated to open next year.
