MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A report filed by OSHA sheds new light on the death of a worker at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration said the two workers were installing a solid roof when they fell and slid down the roof.
One of the workers struck a post and was stopped, but injured.
The other, Jeramie Gruber, broke through a guard rail and fell onto an elevated platform below. He died from his injuries.
Both were employed by a subcontractor, Berwald Roofing of North St. Paul. The company has been cited nine times in the past five years, mostly for lack of fall protection.
This OSHA investigation remains open, as they are still looking to see if Gruber was wearing a harness or not when he fell.
