David Hanson, a construction lineman working for Contra Costa Electric, suffered critical injuries in a fall from height. The incident occurred at the Shell Refinery in Martinez on Aug. 7.
Hanson, 29, is a member of IBEW Local Union 953 and had been working in California for a little over a year. He was part of a 5-man crew working to install a ground-operated switch, which was located in the primary circuit an estimated 50 feet above ground.
Brother Hanson remains in critical condition and is surrounded by his new wife and family. Investigations by CalOSHA, Shell Refinery and the employer are all underway.
