Jose Abrego Dies After Pinned Under a Semi-trailer at Pitman Family Farms Plant in Sanger, California

Sanger, California — A man died on Tuesday in an industrial accident at a Sanger farming plant. Jose Abrego lost his life after he was trapped under a semi-trailer.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

OSHA has been informed of the incident.

Thoughts on fatal accidents at work

Such a sad incident: one should never lose one’s life at the workplace. Job sites should have systems in place to prevent workers from dying while on the job. This fatal accident leaves many unanswered questions, mainly — could this accident have been avoided? Many workplace injuries and deaths occur due to human error or inadequate safety precautions.

Employers are responsible for ensuring their workers’ safety in the workplace and must provide the necessary training and procedures to prevent accidents. Sometimes, workers may take shortcuts or make mistakes, but ultimately, it’s the employer’s duty to maintain a safe work environment. When a tragedy like this occurs, the family of the deceased deserves clear answers about what happened.

If any wrongdoing is found, let those responsible be held accountable.
