In a sad and continuing saga of needless deaths, a tree trimmer in Austin, TX was killed today when he came in contact with a power line. The employer, Austin Energy, did not immediately release the workers name. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has been called in to investigate. All employers must take the necessary steps to insure the safety of their workers. There is no excuse for this continuing workplace carnage.
