IOSH, or OSHA as it's most commonly called fined a Clear Lake company $357,000 for an accident that killed an employee. The Des Moines Register article indicates this is the second time an open hopper unprotected by guardrails has been the issue of a citation.  The worker that died is 35, Simon Trinidad. He's entitled to receive at the very least workers' compensation death benefits. If he was married or had dependents they too are entitled to benefits.

"The Iowa Occupational Safety and Health Bureau said employees were exposed to the 12-foot deep, open hopper that was unprotected by guardrails. The company was cited in 2006 for the same violation."
