OSHA inspectors last month slapped a Brooklyn supermarket with more than $62,000 in fines for locking all five exit doors during the night shift. The doors could only be opened by a manager.
“These workers were essentially caged and that is completely unacceptable,” said an OSHA director. OSHA standards require that employees be able to open an exit route door from inside at all times, without keys, tools or special knowledge.
