Countryside Tree Care and OSHA have been unable to come to an agreement through informal conferences, and the case is now set to go for trial in October.

Laws should be changed so that the family of an injured or killed worker can receive the benefits to which they are rightfully entitled.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s case against Tony Watson in the death of Justus Booze, 23, in a woodchipper in May continues, since Watson is now contesting the $141,000 fines against him.

Six months after Justus Booze died in a woodchipper on his first day on the job with a tree service, the employer who hired him for the day but did not train him is fined $141,800 by OSHA.
