Police are investigating a fatal industrial accident at Sadoff and Rudoy Industries, a scrap metal processing company. Sadoff and Rudoy Industries employs over 220 workers in six scrap metal processing operations in Wisconsin, Lincoln and Nebraska. The deceased worker, 34-year-old Daniel V. Lehner of Fond du Lac, was extricated and pronounced dead at the scene. The death still remains under investigation.
Scrap metal processing companies like Sadoff and Rudoy Industries are involved in state-of-the-art operations that require heavy investments in equipment and the latest in environmental and quality controls. These companies sort, grade and process the scrap that is collected and brought to their facilities. Once processed to meet size, chemistry and density requirements, the processed scrap is sent to foundries, steel mills and smelters to be used in creating new products.
Working around scrap metal is never risk-free. Several incidents involving scrap metal containing radioactive material have been recorded, and the heavy machinery that workers use is susceptible to failures. If you have suffered industrial injuries due to toxic chemical exposure or other
workplace hazards, contacting an
