    Workers safety may be probed - By Jill Tucker and Sean Holstege, Tri-Valley Herald, CA
    The injury would ultimately require a referral to an orthopedic specialist, physical therapy and more than two months disability leave. It ended his 20-year career with prime contractor Peter Kiewit & Sons.

    Yet Bates does not appear on construction team KFM Joint Ventures Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses, as required by federal OSHA standards.

    The log documents the projects injury rate for incidents requiring more than basic first aid, a restriction of duty or time off work.

    According to a statement from Cal-OSHA spokesman Dean Fryer, ...KFM disputes the existence of the injury, and if there is an injury, whether it is work related.
