A wood chipper and an Upstate New York employer’s failure to provide safety training combined to make a 23-year-old worker’s first day on the job his tragic last, an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has found. The worker died on May 4, 2016, after a wood chipper pulled him into the machine. OSHA inspectors determined that his employer exposed workers to the danger of being caught in the machine’s rotating parts and failed to train them in the safe operation of wood chippers.
