Cal/OSHA Fines BART $210,000 in 2013 Accident that Killed 2 Transit Workers
By California DIR - April 17, 2014

The Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) was fined today by Cal/OSHA for willful serious safety violations that resulted in two workers being killed by a fast-moving train in Walnut Creek, California last October 2013. The citations carry proposed penalties totaling $210,000.
Cal/OSHA issued the citations for three willful serious violations after its investigation found the following:
The two workers who were killed, Christopher D. Sheppard and Laurence E. Daniels, did not meet the qualifications to perform work near hazardous energized third-rails. Sheppard was a BART special projects manager, Daniels was a contractor and consulting engineer.
A trainee was at the controls when the accident occurred—his trainer, a high-ranking transportation manager, was seated in the passenger car with other BART managers and another trainee. He could not view the track from his vantage point in the passenger car.
BART’s “simple approval” procedures for employees working on the tracks were both inadequate and not followed.
