Construction resumes at GlobalFoundries

Construction resumed Tuesday at GlobalFoundries Fab 8, five days after a worker was killed in a construction accident at the computer chip manufacturing complex.

Michael Hauf, 54, of Saranac, a foreman with mechanical contractor John W. Danforth, died Thursday when an air exchanger being moved into the Technology Development Center fell on him.

“This unfortunate incident is a stark reminder of why safety is always our highest priority on our campus,” said GlobalFoundries spokesman Travis Bullard.

Immediately after the incident, GlobalFoundries suspended all construction activity to await internal reviews.

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration is continuing its investigation.

The $2.3 billion Technology Development Center is scheduled to be finished by the end of this year.

Chip production at Fab 8 continued after the accident.
