Kristine Griffing suffered fatal injuries at the Kearney Eaton plant in December of last year.
Now OSHA has imposed a fine on the company, a fine Kristine Griffing's father says he just can't believe.
Bernard Griffing: "Actually I was shocked at the price they put on a preventable death."
That price -- the reported fine: just under six thousand dollars.
Kristine Griffing's father is blind, but, he says, even he can see that something is going on....
Bernard Griffing: "It sounds like a whitewash to me, because Eaton the corporation was running those dangerous machines illegally by not keeping them safety devices on their machines, or in between their machines or wherever...So that's a death that could've, more than likely, could've been prevented."
An Eaton Corporation representative says they're taking OSHA's findings seriously, saying in a statement : "One of those actions is to install additional guarding on the machine where the injury occurred.... Kris was a valued member of the Kearney team and there is no doubt she is greatly missed. Her contributions at Kearney will not be forgotten."
Kristine Griffings father said he won't protest the fines. He says it won't bring his daughter back.
