Atlantic Testing & OSHA Reach Settlement In Employee's Death

Posted: Updated: Aug 09, 2018 12:54 PM

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has reached a final settlement with a Canton company in the wake of an employee's death.

Atlantic Testing Laboratories originally faced more than $46,000 in fines in the death of a Potsdam man earlier this year.

According to an OSHA spokesperson Thursday, the fine was amended to a little more than $37,000.

The spokesperson said Atlantic Testing has corrected the problems that led to 33 year old Justin Miller's death and has agreed to hire a safety consultant.

The company also agreed to train employees on how to use tire-changing equipment properly.

Miller died in March when a tire he was changing blew off a rim.
