We Still Can’t Trust Companies to Keep Workers Safe: OSHA at Work

We Still Can’t Trust Companies to Keep Workers Safe: OSHA at Work

In today’s world, we’re far from the working conditions described in Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle.

Perhaps because of our cultural advances and technological breakthroughs, it may be tempting to believe that the workplace is inherently safer today.  Many of us may also think that today, employers are more vigilant in protecting their people from on the job work injury.

Really?  Let’s consider what the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) did over one 24-hour period this month (November 9 -10, 2010):

That’s almost $800,000 in fines and penalties for failures to protect workers from harm — all issued within one 24-hour period.

Be careful out there.
