Mississippi Man Killed in Sandblasting Accident

Posted By Industrial Injury Lawyer || 1-Feb-2012

Yesterday a Mississippi worker was involved in an industrial accident at a shipyard that proved fatal. The man was an employee of VT Halter Marine, a subsidiary of Vision Technology Systems, an integrated engineering group providing solutions to electronics, land systems, aerospace, and marine sectors. The man was 66 years old.

The coroner determined that the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the upper body. Authorities from the Pascagoula, Mississippi police department said that the accident involved sandblasting equipment. The deceased was a full-time worker employed as a sandblast helper. The accident is under investigation by the Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

The cause of this accident remains unknown, but the causes of many machinery accidents such as this range from failure to regularly inspect equipment to improper training. Managers and supervisors are required to oversee the handling of this machinery at all times to prevent accidents like this from occurring.
