OSHA probes electrocution

By SEAN DOUGLAS Thursday, April 3 2014

THE electrocution of two workmen at a building in El Socorro last Monday is being investigated by the Occupational Safety and Health Authority (OSHA) of the Ministry of Labour, Newsday was told by the OSHA Communications Department yesterday.

Richard Ramsundar, 36, of Charlieville, and Joseph Galiaram, 26, of Lange Park, were killed when working on a three-storey building at Hosein Street, Boundary Road, El Socorro, when their ladder accidentally touched high-voltage power-cables.

Richard’s younger brother, Ricardo Ramsundar, survived the tragedy.

The Ramsundar family is asking if the building extension where the fatalities occurred had ever received planning approval, especially regarding its closeness to the power-lines.

In addition to the OSHA probe, an investigation is also underway by the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation, while T&TEC is collecting details of the incident, each agency told Newsday. The police may also be investigating, suggested a family member to Newsday.

Yesterday Philip Ramsundar said he had succeeded in getting replacements for the missing personal documents of his son, Richard — electronic birth certificate and identification card — a lack of which had hitherto prevented the funeral home from releasing Richard’s body for burial. “Richard was a cool guy, always willing to do something in the place,” related Philip. “He built this house, block by block. He was the main man in building this house for the whole family.”
