It appears the workers were installing a storm drain in back of the building housing the business, according to police. The identity of the worker was not disclosed.

A Google map view of the address shows the location is also K&D's office. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) spokeswoman Johanna Hawkins told New Jersey 101.5 K&D does not have any previous OSHA violations.
