OSHA has fined the Disney company Disney $44,000 after a July accident on the Walt Disney World train caused a worker death. According to reports, one of the trains was driving in reverse during a track switch, backing into another train, killing the driver.
This type of accident, whether it’s a Georgia work injury, requires an Atlanta workers comp lawyer or a product liability case, is entirely preventable with adequate worker training and communication. Here, a worker in a maintenance bay apparently mistakenly radioed that it was clear for the train to begin backing up, even though the track had not been realigned.
