Md. safety agency cites Metro
The Maryland Occupational Safety and Health office has issued two citations to Metro for workplace safety violations in the deaths of two of its track workers.
The Washington Examiner reports that the state's safety agency has ordered Metro to improve communications and dead zones in its radio network following the Jan. 26 deaths of Jeff Garrard and Sung Oh. The workers were replacing faulty track equipment when they were struck by a high rail truck. The safety agency found that Metro failed to provide a constant lookout for the workers.
The National Transportation Safety Board is also investigating the accident.
