Manager--convicted of homicide-- sentenced to teach safety class

Via the AFL-CIO NOW blog

Jordan at Confined Space has the story: Brent H. Weidman, former head of the Far West Water and Sewer Co., was convicted of two counts of negligent homicide in the 2001 deaths of two workers who were suffocated by toxic sewage gases while working on an underground sewer tank in Mesa Del Sol, Ariz. In addition to probation and a $250-a-month fine, poor Weidman got sentenced to 840 hours of teaching safety classes for the Arizona Occupational Safety and Health Administration in Yuma.
