Life-Flighted Clayton Homes Employee in Workplace Incident Draws Fire Department, Police, and Federal Investigators; plus Manufactured Housing Updates


While manufactured housing production centers have safety procedures that routinely perform by keeping construction team members safe, injuries and even occasion deaths do occur. Perhaps because of Clayton Homes’ profile, or maybe due to their market share, for whatever reasons local and mainstream media reports seem to reflect a higher incident rate with Clayton for injuries, threats, or fatalities. ABC 15 editor said: “Editor’s note: Buckeye police initially reported the name of the business involved was Schultz Manufacturing, but later clarified it was Clayton Homes. The story has since been updated.”

A man was badly hurt and taken to the hospital Tuesday morning after a manufactured home collapsed on top of him in Buckeye, according to the Buckeye Police Department.”

The initial report began as follows.

BUCKEYE Ariz. – Firefighters say a man has life-threatening injuries after a manufactured home collapsed while it was being assembled at a Buckeye business.”

The ABC 15 update said that “A worker will be OK after a manufactured home collapsed while he was working on it Tuesday morning in Buckeye, according to the Buckeye Police Department.

In a Tuesday afternoon tweet, Buckeye police said the 21-year-old worker was listed in stable condition at the hospital and was considered to have non-life-threatening injuries. Previously, Buckeye police said the man was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.”


As was noted above, for whatever reasons, Clayton seems to stir up more such reports that others. Some examples are as follows.

Additionally, despite Clayton Homes’ promoting their self-proclaimed wonderful workplace for team members, there is a different image painted by Indeed, Pissed Consumer and other sources. In fairness, for outsiders looking in, workplace injuries occur with conventional construction too. That noted, it will be interesting to see what the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), which has been called into investigate the matter.

Three of the posted comments on the YouTube video are these:

  • We live very close to this place. My son worked there for a few months seven years ago. He quit over safety concerns and poor management. Godspeed to the young man injured. Wishing him a speedy full recovery!”
  • I doubt it [the manufactured home] It fell while the were setting it up more than likely. I’ve had 2 fall over the years and normally it has a lot to do with no safeties under the beams for just such a thing.”
  • That is the last we we will hear about this story

The capture system for 11.3.2021 failed. Our apologies for that error. This is from 11.2.2021. (UT-R) has accused the Biden team of implementing policies that harm the poorest and middle class more while enriching the wealthy. Weeks before others in the mainstream media began to flash their ‘inflation warnings,’ MHProNews added first the top, then later the second notice above. When someone has even a basic understanding of the principles of economics, ‘inflation’ was predictable. The question is, will hyper-inflation follow? There are voices on both sides of that debate.
