Ray Cartwright: Safety 1st, repairs 2nd
To the editor:
Shame on the road and bridge department. Why would you put your employees, neighbor, children, spouse and whomever that guy knows in jeopardy like that. I know that the city and county aren’t regulated by OSHA regulations.
There is such a thing as trench digging rules and regulations and they are there for the protection of the person in the trench or, in this case, hole (photographed by the Craig Daily Press in the story titled: Water leak in downtown Craig creates minor traffic, hole in ground).
I am looking at the picture and see by the ladder that the hole is at least 5 feet deep, and the truck sitting right next to the hole creates added pressure on the side walls of that hole. That is an accident waiting to happen and, as I stated at the beginning of my letter, shame on all the people that would allow the employee to get down in that hole.
On a side note, I don’t imagine that the CDP will even see this as newsworthy enough to print.
New school record, outdone expectations at state mark bright future for Moffat County track and field
