As a result of those violations, the company has twice been required to attend training sessions to learn how to avoid these tragedies.Prosecutors are accusing the two parties of willfully running the risk of not properly securing the drain.The district attorney office also alleges that during the investigation, Kevin Otto and the Atlantic Drain Services purposefully mislead investigators and concealed or tampered with important records.They believe the company doctored paperwork with forged dates and signatures showing employees had attended training sessions from their two previous OSHA violations in 2007 and 2012.
