OSHA and the city of Palo Alto, California are investigating the death of an electrical lineman employed by the city.
Forty-two-year-old Donatus Okhomina, described in news reports as a “seasoned electrical lineman,” was killed Saturday morning in an incident involving an electrical transformer. He was transported to a local hospital, where he died from his injuries.
An employee at a Pennsylvania food processing plant was killed on the job Tuesday after falling into an industrial-size meat grinder machine.
Jill Greninger, 35, was reportedly standing on stairs next to the grinder when she "tragically either fell or was drawn into the machine resulting in her death," according to a statement by Lycoming County Coroner Charles Kiessling.
