Investigation launched into Warrensburg worker's accidental death
KANSAS CITY - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration office in Kansas City is investigating the death of a maintenance worker on the job at a Warrensburg foundry.
OSHA says initial reports indicate the worker, whose identity hasn't been released, was troubleshooting a machine at Stahl Specialty Company on Monday when it engaged and fatally struck him.
The agency is looking into whether the machine was locked out to prevent operation at the time of the incident.
Stahl Specialty is based in Kingsville, where it also operates a second foundry. It was cited in January for one serious violation after a worker suffered an amputation injury at the Warrensburg plant two months earlier.
