Description

The death of an electrical lineman in Maine prompted the paper to look at Central Maine Power Company's safety records. An OSHA investigation showed that CMP worked many of their workers for far too long. The man who died had worked his last 55 1/2 hours on about five hours of broken sleep. The investigation prompted the company to reach an agreement with its union to hire more workers, cut back on worker hours, and increase safety standards.
