OSHA proposes fines in Colorado videographer’s death

DENVER (AP) – Federal regulators are proposing $91,000 in fines for a California company over a freelance videographer’s death at a motocross race course near suburban Denver.

Fifty-seven-year-old Stuart Keene fell from an elevated all-terrain scissor lift at the Thunder Valley Motocross Park on June 25.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued citations alleging Lucas Oil Production Studios of Corona, Calif., removed guardrails from lifts and didn’t train employees on proper operating procedures for the lifts.

A company representative wasn’t immediately available Wednesday for comment.

Keene’s sister, Barbie Keene Christopher, told KCNC-TV in Denver her brother’s death could have been prevented.
