OSHA inspectors allege sawmill continues to expose employees to amputation hazards

TIGERTON, Wis. — A U.S. Department of Labor follow-up inspection of Tigerton Lumber Co. found that the Wisconsin sawmill continued to expose many of its employees to amputation and other dangers. The inspection was part of a federal program for severe violators. The company was deemed a severe violator in 2019 after an investigation into how an employee suffered fatal injuries in 2018.  Woodworking Network emailed a company manager listed on Tigerton's website for comment, but the company has not yet responded.
