OSHA inspection reports – Dec 2020

An OSHA inspection classified as a “referral” means a first responder observed that an incident was occupational in nature and called OSHA, whereas one classified as “accident” means the victim was hospitalized and the employer notified OSHA. The date we publish is when the OSHA inspection was opened, and it may lag as much as a day or two behind when the incident actually occurred.

Tree care incidents involving civilians and tree workers, but not included in the inspection reports, will still be obtained from news stories and other sources as they always have been.
