Accident injures two at concrete factory

Posted November 17, 2008

— An accident injured two people Monday, one seriously, at Greystone Concrete Products in Henderson.

One man fell about 40 feet from a catwalk along a conveyor belt at the factory, 2100 N. Garnett St., Henderson Fire Chief Doug Stevens said. The man, whose name was not released, landed face-first on concrete.

The man suffered serious injuries and was transported to Maria Parham Hospital.

The catwalk had corroded with time, a Greystone Concrete official said. The man has worked for the company for about 25 years, the official said.

Another worker got trapped on top of a piece of equipment and had to be pulled off, Stevens said. The man did not appear to be injured and refused medical treatment.

    One thing for sure, the Boss didn't have to climb the catwalk or it would have been safe.

    Why Didn't OSHA inspect the site? Why was the cat walk corroded and not maintained... The story said two were injured... Looked like only one to me... Who writes this stuff?
