HANOVER, N.H. (AP) - A federal agency investigation into the death of a construction worker in New Hampshire is likely to take several weeks.
Dana Lowe, 53, of Morrisville, Vt., died Wednesday after he was knocked off a hydraulic lift and fell into a pile of steel beams on Tuesday. He was helping to erect the beams at the Hanover Inn as part of an expansion project.
The Valley News reports inspectors from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration have started investigating whether any workplace safety standards were violated.
Lowe was hired as a subcontractor by CSE Inc. of Williston. Engelberth Construction of Colchester, Vt., is the general contractor. The work site was not closed; however, CSE suspended work on its portion to allow its six-member crew to grieve and talk to councilors.
