Kennco has appealed the fines. Kennco officials did not return calls for comment. The lawsuit was filed by four of Church’s children and names as defendants Trimark Pacific Homes, the city and the county. City and county officials said they had not seen the lawsuit and therefore could not comment. Claims filed by the plaintiffs’ attorneys were rejected by the city and county last fall. Trimark Pacific officials did not respond to requests for comment. PALMDALE – The family of a Lancaster construction worker killed in the collapse of a trench in a housing-tract construction site has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the developer, the city and Los Angeles County. Robert Church Jr., 35, was laying sewer pipe when the March 21, 2005, collapse occurred at a housing tract adjacent to the Rancho Vista golf course and across the street from Rancho Vista Elementary School. The defendants allowed the construction site to be in a dangerous condition, “in that an unshored trench collapsed thereby proximately causing the death of Robert Church Jr. …,” the lawsuit said. Church was an employee of Santa Clarita-based Kennco Plumbing, a contractor that installs new tract home plumbing, state officials said. The incident in the 4100 block of Bethpage Drive buried Church in a 32-inch-wide, nearly 8-foot-deep trench, a Cal-OSHA report said. Other construction workers dug into the collapsed trench with shovels, but by the time they unearthed Church’s face from under about 3 feet of dirt it was too late to save him. Construction workers said at the time that recent heavy rains had changed the consistency of the normally hard-packed Antelope Valley soil they were used to working in. Cal-OSHA said in a report that Kennco did not protect Church “from a cave-in by an adequate protective system designed in accordance with” state safety and health regulations. State regulations state that “each employee in an excavation shall be protected from cave-ins by an adequate protective system … except when excavations are made entirely in stable rock or excavations are less than 5 feet in depth and examination of the ground by a competent person provides no indication of a potential cave-in,” the report said. The report said inspections must be conducted prior to the start of work, as needed throughout the shift, and after every rainstorm or other hazard-increasing occurrence. Kennco did not notify Cal-OSHA officials prior to the commencement of the trench excavations and did not post a “Code of Safe Practices” at a conspicuous location on the job site, as required, the report said.
