A cooperative company, called Associated Milk Producers, Inc., has been cited for failing to provide adequate safety measures for employees, after the company's truck driver was killed when he fell off the top of his truck.
The fifty-year old worker was not wearing a safety harness as he was cleaning his truck and died after falling ten feet and hitting the concrete ground. The cooperative was issued a willful citation, which accused the it of being indifferent to the death of an employee.
The cooperative claims that they have always had safety harnesses available to prevent injuries in the case of a fall, but they will now require employees to wear the harnesses.
