A company broke a law prohibiting workers under the age of 18 from operating power-driven wood working machinery and it resulted in the maiming of a teenage boy. The boy lost his and when he touched a part of a wood planer while manufacturing pallets.

OSHA issued the company 17 serious safety violations. They are also being investigated by the Wage and Hour division for “probable  violations of child labor laws.” To learn more about the safety violations issued visit the OSHA news release page.
