Occupational Health & Safety recently ran a story that highlights the high cost of ignoring safety concerns on the job. A Pennsylvania company was fined more than $600K for willful violation of OSHA safety regulations which resulted in a fall-related death of an employee. This company was cited two years prior for the same violation, but never took steps to fix the problem. See full article here.
