I wonder if the press release was timed with notification of the business. This is OSHA's standard procedure to put the accused at a disadvantage. A murderer has more rights than someone being accused of anything by OSHA. Many times there are safety oversites in the workplace, but instead of notifing the employers of the problem and helping them resolve them OSHA sneaks up & attacks. There is usually much more effort expended in trying to defend than solving the problem in the first place. Many times the person making the complaint has never attempted to notify the employer of the problem. That should be OSHA's first question to the complaintent. When the dems are in power this gets much worse. Usually the businesses being targeted are non-union.

Please move to Texas.Hope you don't encounter a dangerous workplace situation.

We enjoy the idea that someone is holding business accountable for unsavory & extremely dangerous work environments.

Don't really enjoy consuming dosages of cadium & related toxins while on the job.

And the OSHA official asked the company manager, "Is it ignorance or is it apathy?" And the company manager responded, "Gee, I don't know and I don't care."

This is ourageous! Shame on them! The protection of the employees is not that difficult to follow. Someone was asleep at the switch!

Fine them big time! Then, when they shut down and there is no access for patients on the near east side, blame George Bush!

good thing OSHA is being defunded by the Rethuglicans, no oversight, no problem. See how easy it is to solve problems when you move at the speed of business.

$58,200 in fines. Did they inspect to make sure the tolet seat was of proper shape? How far would that go toward hiring someone to physicaly take care of the above problems, and insure future problems don't happen. I may not know how bad the problems were at this business, but I believe this should have been at least discussed with the business before taking it to trial in the press. Considering OSHA's past history it smells like power and money for the government. Yes I am bias.
