California safety officials have issued more than $50,000 in fines against an elevator company whose employee was killed while working at the San Francisco 49ers’ new stadium in Santa Clara. A 63-year-old mechanic, Don White, was killed on June 11 when hit by an elevator counterweight. The state’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health cited Schindler Elevator Corp. for three serious violations, including its alleged failure to enclose counterweights in freight elevators with required guards. White was the first of two workers to die while working on the new $1.2 billion stadium, which is slated to open this year.
