Summer break in Oklahoma is the time for many teenagers to get a taste of work life and earn an income that will make them less dependent on their parents. Safety authorities warn that inexperience, over-eagerness and the desire to satisfy employers often lead to serious workplace injuries among teen workers. For that reason, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently undertook to provide youth, administrators and educators with safety guidelines.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation into an incident that caused the death of a worker in Oklahoma. Naturally, the family of the worker, who had three younger brothers, are devastated and eager to know precisely what led to the fatal workplace injury their loved one suffered. A Tulsa police spokesperson says the death was an accident.
