Superior Asphalt in Grand Rapids investigated by state after worker injured in explosion

Mar, 16 2010

GRAND RAPIDS -- The state is investigating whether Grand Rapids-based Superior Asphalt violated safe workplace laws after a worker was injured in an explosion.

Adrian Rocskay, director of the general industry safety and health division of the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration, said it could take his agency several months to conduct the investigation into last Friday's incident.

"The reason we do the investigation is to determine if there are violations of our regulations," Rocskay said, adding his agency launches more than 1,000 investigations into possible workplace safety violations each year.

Officials from Superior Asphalt, 669 Century Ave. SW, didn't return repeated calls seeking comment.

Initial reports indicate Bill Zetty, 34, of Morley, was taken to Spectrum Health Blodgett Hospital shortly before noon Friday with second- and third-degree burns covering most of his upper body. He was listed in critical condition.
