Notre Dame has scheduled a news conference at 11 a.m. Monday to announce the results of the university's investigation into the Oct. 27 hydraulic lift accident that killed student videographer Declan Sullivan, the school announced Sunday.
Notre Dame was fined $77,500 by the Indiana Occupational Health and Safety Administration in February for six safety violations tied to Sullivan's death after the state completed its investigation.
IOSHA said Notre Dame failed to maintain safe working conditions or heed National Weather Service warnings.
Notre Dame has filed an official notice of contest on the state’s findings to allow the university’s administration time to review IOSHA’s report and ask questions before a hearing would be set before an administrative law judge.
Sullivan, a 20-year-old junior from Long Grove, Ill., died when the lift he was filming practice from toppled in gusts of up to 53 mph Oct. 27.
Notre Dame has since banned the use of hydraulic lifts to film practice and installed a remote camera system at its outdoor football training facility.
Notre Dame president Rev. John I. Jenkins along with Peter Likins, a president emeritus of the University of Arizona and an independent reviewer of Notre Dame's investigation, Irish athletic director Jack Swarbrick and football coach Brian Kelly, Notre Dame head football coach are among those who will attend Monday's news conference.
Notre Dame will make the full report of its investigation available on the Web after the news conference.
