OSHA Investigating Electrical Accident at Sivyer Steel in Iowa

BETTENDORF, IOWA – It is reported that Occupational Safety & Health Administration is investigating an electrical accident that occurred at Sivyer Steel in Bettendorf, IA.

Mr Phil Redington Bettendorf Police Chief said that a worker was injured during the August 29th 2009 accident. He added that the police and fire departments responded to the scene about 10:26 PM local time.
