A 26-year-old man was killed while working at the Cardinal Aluminum plant in Louisville, Kentucky on Monday. Authorities arrived at the plant around 8 a.m. and pronounced the man dead at the scene. Several workers witnessed the accident and stated that the man was working on a paint line and was reaching for some equipment when the accident occurred. Little information is being released about the accident but authorities confirmed the worker died of blunt force trauma. The man had been employed at the plant for two years and was an expecting father.
A few workers at the plant stated that the facility is an unsafe workplace and that several accidents have occurred at this location. In December of 2012, OSHA had issued Cardinal Aluminum with seven violations that were serious, meaning that they could cause serious injury or fatalities. Records also indicate that there have been several workplace accidents at the plant and that they have received thousands of dollars in fines.
