Man from Potsdam Dies in Workplace Accident
A man from Potsdam has died after an accident that is reported to have happened while he was changing a tire on the job. This incident happened on Friday, March 9, 2018.
The Canton police, as well as the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, have said they are looking into the death. The victim was 33-year-old Justin Miller. He was working his job with Atlantic Testing Laboratories on Route 11 when the incident occurred.
It appears that the accident happened in the village of Canton. It is said to have occurred at 80 Lincoln Street, a place where Atlantic Testing has a shop.
According to the Occupation Health and Safety Administration, they are still looking into the death, and they sent inspectors to Atlantic Testing Laboratories after they were given a report that a worker died there while changing a tire.
The police say that the death is not a criminal matter. OSHA will continue its inspection and determine what happened. They are looking to see if any violations of workplace safety standards occurred and if any violations led to the accident.
OSHA also says they do not have any record of inspections held at Atlantic Testing in the past five years.
