OSHA fines ‘The Walking Dead’ production company in stuntman’s death


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined the producers of hit AMC television show “The Walking Dead” in the death of a stuntman working on an episode of the show in Georgia last summer.

Stalwart Films LLC, the production company, was notified Friday that it was being fined $12,675 for failing to protect its workers after stuntman John Bernecker, 33, died from injuries resulting from a July fall.

OSHA proposed assessing the maximum allowable fine for a single citation of $12,675 for the production company’s failure to provide adequate protection for its workers. OSHA said it investigated Stalwart’s filming location in Senoia, Ga., after Bernecker fell more than 20 feet from a balcony onto a concrete floor, suffering a head injury.
