US Department of Labor initiative seeks to reduce deaths, injuries, protect workers in New England’s tree, landscaping operations

There have been 31 worker deaths in the tree trimming and removal, landscaping and site preparation industries since 2016 that the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration New England region has investigated. To reduce the risks workers in these industries face, OSHA’s Boston regional office has established a Regional Emphasis Program that combines enforcement and outreach with employers. If you are contracting tree companies in your municipality, please ensure they are working safely!
