ONN – Another Whisleblower Las Vegas Stadium Worker Reports On Bad Bolts Problem: Oakland Raiders News
And in this update on the Las Vegas Stadium Whisleblower Reports, this email was sent approximately one hour ago, at 6:29 PM CST, on this December 3rd, 2019, day: (The name was withheld upon request to this blogger.)
I read your recently published article in regards to bolts in the roof structure. However, there far more bolt issues in the truss columns as well.
I was an foreman on that sight…
Glad to see this come to light.
Can explain more if needed later.
Anyone tell you about the hydraulic crane that flipped over inside the bowl? That Reliable Crane cut it up in pieces and hauled it away the same night….never reporting it to OSHA?
The crane flipped over in July during night shift operations. A “oiler” (operator in training) was practicing inside the bowl area without having his outriggers placed properly and turned over the 65t RT crane. The oiler was not injured but Reliable Crane Service who owned the crane came in immediately after the incident. They cut the crane into pieces and hauled it away before dayshift arrived. Mortenson/McCarthy were aware of the incident and swept it under the rug.
As far as the bolt issue, i over saw a detail crew of ironworkers responsible for the install and torque of structural bolts. During the torque process bolts were breaking in half. We were told to replace them and hide the bad bolts.
In fairness to Mortenson – McCarthy, every stadium construction site has its share of mishaps. The effort here isn’t to develop a list and hold out the idea that Mortenson – McCarthy isn’t running a job site that’s not safe for the workers – not at all. That said, it would be dishonest to the intent of this effort to leave out part of a worker’s story. The claims regarding the bolts and their condition are not so much “worker safety issues,” as they are structural integrity issues – much more important, considering Las Vegas Stadium is expected to host as many as 72,000 people at once for a Super Bowl Game.
Note from Oakland News Now Technical: this video-blog post shows the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
