A couple of years ago, I was involved in a hearing conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) pertaining to a fatality related to tire and wheel service. The deceased was an experienced tire technician who, for some unknown reason, attempted to correct the seating of multi-piece rim components while the tire was still inflated. His actions were in violation of OSHA regulations—and it cost him his life.
