KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A federal agency is proposing nearly $200,000 in fines against a Kansas City-based company after a technician died last year after being electrocuted at a construction site in Missouri.
The company, U.S. Engineering Services, was fined in 2021 after another technician was fatally electrocuted while working at a site in Wichita.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced Tuesday that it had cited U.S. Engineering Services for three serious and two repeat violations.
The apprentice heating, ventilation and air conditioning technician was electrocuted in August after contacting energized parts while clearing a chiller unit at University Academy in Kansas City.
The agency cited similar violations after the July 2021 fatality in Wichita.
