PG&E workers lied about safety inspections; utility scrambles to do them

Friday, December 14, 2012

Another disturbing episode from the utility that can’t seem to get out of its own way: PG&E is rushing around the Bay Area checking more than 1,500 pieces of underground electrical equipment . . . because it knows or suspects that some of its employees and contractors lied about doing safety inspections that never happened. The Chronicle’s Jaxon Van Derbeken says PG&E has fired or suspended eight employees and 11 contract workers so far.
