New safety law for electrical workers across the country

Minnesota residents might not know what a dangerous job it is to keep the state's electricity running, but the Occupational Safety and Health Administration does. Electrical lineworkers install and fix towers, power lines and poles by climbing up structures without safety harnesses, and this "free climbing" tactic will no longer be allowed because of a new federal law that takes effect this month.

OSHA behind on Minnesota inspections

A 39-year-old New Carlisle, Ohio, man died on Aug. 6, 2013, after being buried in 8,000 pounds of fly ash while working at a cement plant in Middletown, Ohio. The death was ruled an accident. Earlier that year, 16 people were killed and 160 injured in an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas. It had been 13 years since federal safety officials had inspected the cement plant. It also emerged that the Texas fertilizer plant had last been inspected in the 1980s.
