Brent Coon Statement from Conference Call regarding Houston Crane Collapse

Brent Coon conducted a conference call on July 18th regarding the Houston Crane Collapse. As first reported by Occupational Hazards. Part of the story is below, to read the full report from Occupational Hazards please click here.

"Media reports indicate that the crane collapsed on a nearby tent workers used to cool down, take a break or eat lunch. Brent Coon, an attorney with Brent Coon & Associates, said in a July 18 conference call that trailers, tents and other facilities should not be located within several hundred feet of operating units. The law firm represents the United Steelworkers and other unions and maintains an emergency task force to address such major incidents.

Coon said it is “disheartening” that companies still place temporary shelters so close to work sites. Companies often do this, he explained, so the work force can take breaks and still be in immediate proximity to the units. Placing such tents so close to the work units is a money-saving tactic."
