Contractor in Ewing Blast Fined $100,000

The contractor working for New Jersey’s largest utility, PSE&G, at the sight of the massive town house explosion in Ewing, New Jersey has recently been fined more than $100,000 by safety regulators. The contracting company, Henkels & McCoy, was cited last year for problems at two separate sites by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for violations involving signaling, warning signs, and protection of workers during excavations, reported KWQC News. The company is currently contesting the fines.

Henkels & McCoy was working to replace electric service when a gas line was damaged. Crews were working about an hour later to repair the line, when suddenly “ignition” occurred. The home was destroyed and 50 others were damaged in the area.

Sadly, seven utility workers were injured and one resident was killed.
