Explosion: Fatal Georgia workplace accident kills 1, injures 5

A Georgia family is grieving the loss of a loved one while authorities are investigating an explosion that occurred early in the morning of a recent Sunday. The workplace accident that claimed this man's life happened at a grain mill in Rockmart at a facility at which poultry feed is manufactured. Five workers had to be hospitalized with injuries of varied severity, and it was reported that one of them was still in the hospital at the time of this report, nine days after the incident.

Company cited for serious injuries that caused worker's death

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently cited a manufacturer in Georgia for safety violations in the October death of a worker in Decatur. The worker was killed when a steel coil weighing three tons fell on him. The company was cited for serious safety violations, meaning that work hazards that could cause serious injuries, illness or death went unaddressed.
