Houston sawmill fined for hazard causing death

In Houston, Texas, a sawmill was recently fined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, for failing to protect workers from unguarded machines. An employee of the sawmill was killed when a piece of lumber weighing over 800 pounds was kicked out of an unguarded machine and struck him, fatally wounding him.

The company was fined for not providing an approved method for preventing the lumber from kicking back and striking a worker. The company was also fined for failing to install a guardrail on work platforms and failing to guard chains, sprockets, belts and pulleys properly, and for failing to cover unused electrical panel openings.
