Chicago Tribune coverage on the Valparaiso Safety Day

By March 28, 2018 No Comments

An unmarked gas line, an excavator operator raring to go, and a spotter for the excavator who wasn’t paying attention led to a mock-disaster when the excavator hit the gas line, sending the spotter to the ground with a knee injury and the excavator operator running to call 911.

“You can see several things there led to the line strike,” said Patrick Carney, a coordinator with Enertech, which staged the gas line drill March 21 at the Porter County Expo Center to outline the dangers of unsafe digging. -Amy Lavallay, Post Tribune
