SANTA CLARA (KCBS) – State officials have cited an elevator company in the death of a worker at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara earlier this year.
63-year-old Donald White was working for San Leandro-based Schindler Elevator, when he was killed on the job on June 11.
“This employee was working in an elevator shaft, when the counterweight came down and struck and killed him,” said Peter Melton, a spokesman with the Division of Occupational Safety and Health. “There are three citations. They are for serious violations and they generally have to do with the procedures for working in an elevator shaft and the lack of guarding of the counterweight in the elevator.”
