After the recent death of a 21-year-old temporary worker on his first day at a Bacardi Bottling plant, OSHA issued a public warning, reminding that “em­­ployers must train all employees, including temporary workers, on the hazards specific to that workplace, before they start.”

OSHA fined Bacardi $192,000 for the safety violations that led to the death.
