OSHA gives tree trimming tips to Pennsylvania residents

Cutting or trimming a tree can come with several hazards that can cause injuries if they are not addressed. First, workers should not climb a tree with tools in their hands. In addition, they should make sure that a given branch is strong enough to hold their weight before they proceed to climb. Anyone who uses a chain saw or other tool should be trained in its use.

Top construction workplace health and safety violations

According to OSHA reports, workplace fatalities have decreased from a nationwide average of 38 daily in 1973 to 13 daily in 2014. However, serious occupational dangers still exist in Pennsylvania and across the U.S. This is especially true for the construction industry, which accounted for one in five of the workplace fatalities that occurred in 2014. For this reason, OSHA is increasing its fines on construction companies that break safety and health regulations.
