As someone who knows the man involved, and his family, my heart and prayers go out to you. This is a great person. Please keep your negativity off of here and simply PRAY for this family.

Yes, I thought it bizzare that OSHA learned of this incident through the media. That seems very wrong to me.
OSHA is the last number on my list and would never call them.

Are you sure the surgeons were from Hanover Hospital? I know the intersections were cleared by police and the surgeons were given an escort to the site, and I know the man was flown out by helicopter from Moul Field. If the surgeons worked at HH but were coming from home this would make sense, but if the surgeons had to come from another hospital it would make sense too.
I'm not saying the surgeons were NOT from HH, I'm just asking (I don't know the answer either).
it was dr bischoff

That would be like a criminal calling the police during a crime being committed.

OSHA are the people that gives huge fines for minor infractions. It cost companies thousands of dollars. And some of the infractions are just ridiculous.

So you would rather put innocent family people at risk then to possibly expose saftey concerns?

I give him props ( if it was him), for doing this outside of his comfort zone, meaning not in a clean enviroment. Plus having to twist and turn and move around his torso. That is one hell of a DR and great skills! Was this man totally sedated during this surgery? Sure the hell hope he was!

Not sure what direct experience you have had with OSHA but I am sure they will be willing to help out with this issue and create a safer work environment. Most OSHA inspections that result in fines are minor in nature and can usually be decreased to around $1,000 as long as you are willing to work with them and have a quick response to suggestions. If you see first hand that OSHA is giving huge fines for minor infractions maybe you should learn to work with them. When you see that a company is fined astronomical amounts of money it is usually due to severe negligence and being a repeat offender.

That doesn't take away from the real issue here which is the employee who got hurt. Hopefully he is doing well and he and his family can get back to whatever normal will be after this incident.

I see you lack any factory experience work. Innocent family people at risk? Accidents happen no matter what you do.

The only way to avoid accidents is to stay at home and don't work

OSHA does not give small fines. You have to work with them. There is no choice. But some of the rules are just ridiculous.

Yeah when you know OSHA is coming everything gets cleaned up, floors scrubbed, guards on pedestal grinders get pushed back into place, yellow safety chains get put up, etc.

Then after OSHA leaves, everything goes back to normal.

OSHA always finds something wrong. Something ridiculous.

You are wrong. I've been directly involved in an OSHA audit...EVEN worse, a MOSHA audit. Maryland's OSHA, much more in depth. I will say this....we were fined VERY heavily and when we made the corrections needed they reduced our fine to nearly nothing! They will work with you, but, you have to show a commitment to employee safety. Nothing wrong with that. It was not some horrible experience that would shut a business down...unless they so deserved!

Thanks for clearing that up. My post wasn't meant to berate the doctors at HH, just the opposite. I wanted to make sure whoever the surgeons were and wherever they came from they got recognition. I'm sure it was a difficult environment to work in since they were not in a traditional OR.

And what am I wrong about? What was the big safety problem? How many years did you operate with this problem?

Do you feel safer now? LOL

And why are so many companies afraid of OSHA?

Am I still wrong about something?

This town already has a lot of used car salespeople. So, you are not needed.

Are you people that stupid and inconsiderate. Some of these questions and comments are unreal. Info or free of charge. Don't some of you have something better to do tahn dream up these stupid comments. There is no humanity in the people of this area anymore. Does anyone think that the doctors or rescue people had on their mind how things were going to get paid for. Prior someone said about negativity well in my opinion negativity is a way of life on here.

I also heared of the man a few years ago being electricuted. Why didn't Evening Sun print this.
Was he an illegal, was that
why it was covered under the rug. I heard that if any employee talked about it they would be fired.

Any way I hope this man can make a full recovery.

Yes I have mister know it all. I was the first female to work on a paper machine at Glatfelters. It was a very dangerous job, and we took all the right precautions to prevent injuries. Yes, there have been injuries there and yes OSHA was called. So for you to be so blaise about this issue is a real human genetic defect on your part.
