Sparky,
I didn't know that you had to register to read the Chicago Tribune story. I must have registered some time in the past and a cookie let me right in to the story. I'll try another link to the story in the Chicago SunTimes.

thank you Don


the first case includes a poor soul's 2nd day on the job, the second a crane with no grounding.

the thing that's bothersome is that the deceased can't defend themselves here.....

no doubt the co. will produce paperwork that each were made to sign on walking in the door....
