If you think safety issues may be lurking in your workplace, don't wait until an accident or injury brings OSHA calling. Otherwise, the agency will surely do a top-to-bottom inspection and catch even minor problems. That can mean a hefty penalty, as one Georgia carpet manufacturer recently learned.
OSHA cited Oriental Weavers of America for more than 30 alleged safety violations and slapped it with a $125,000 penalty after a fatal accident at Oriental's Dalton factory. Oriental must correct safety violations associated with the death of an employee, whose clothing pulled her into a twisting machine.
