Delta Airlines has entered into a two-year settlement agreement with OSHA to install seat belts on all company baggage-handling vehicles. An OSHA inspection following an employee death led to the agreement.
During the first year, the airline will install seat belts on all company vehicles and train employees to use them. During the second year, the company will fully enforce the requirement that all employees wear the belts while operating vehicles.
The agreement affects approximately 16,000 Delta employees and 9,000 vehicles. OSHA also sent letters to all other airlines reminding them of the seat belt requirements.
Minneapolis is one of Delta’s largest hubs.
