The U.S, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is a body of the United States Department of Labor. It was created by the Congress, under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, on December 29, 1970. From its initiation OSHA has constantly aimed to prevent illnesses, occupational fatalities and work-related injuries, by enforcing and issuing certain standards and issues for workplace health and safety.

Recently, a tree trimmer was killed after a cherry picker boom snapped. The tree trimmer has been identified as Mr. Adam Mackintosh. Unfortunately, he has also left behind a wife, named Melanie, a son named Adison and twin daughters Claire and Sophia.

Mr. Mackintosh was killed in Littleton, after the cherry picker boom he was working on snapped. It is also important to note that he also fell from a height of 30ft.

The Littleton Fire Bureau Chief, Jay Ruoff, stated that the fatal mishap took place at noon, in the 5200 block of Sherman Street. Furthermore, a relative informed the press that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration was investigating the incident.
