The Department of Labor and Industries recently completed its study and discovered that Cardinal CG Tumwater [Wash.] had two serious safety violations following the death of an employee in the Thurston County facility four months ago.

“The purpose of our investigation was to look at the requirements,” said L&I spokesperson Elaine Fischer. “It doesn’t reflect on the tragedy that occurred there and concluding that that is what caused [the accident], and that’s not what we found.”
