CT, New York Workplace Safety Violations Net $16.6 M in Fines

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is committed to reducing incidents related to workplace safety that increase the number of New York workers’ compensation claims. But it seems like their fines are doing little to stop the practice.
For example, the Sally Sherman salad manufacturer has a plant in Mount Vernon, and there are numerous ways for injured workers to be able to fall, even after an earlier citation just last year. They’re exposed to mixers, and machines that can start up without warning while they’re in the vicinity.
This kind of New York workplace safety issue would be fine if it couldn’t lead to worse consequences. Middletown, Connecticut workers found that out first hand, and their families might meet eligibility requirements for workers’ compensation death benefits. More than 200 violations were found in a power plant that was the site of an explosion. In total OSHA fined the construction firm of Kleen Energy Systems more than $16 million.
Good news for families is that if a loved one loses their life as a result of a workplace safety issue, or other tragedy on the job, they may be eligible for workers’ compensation death benefits. But it shouldn’t have to go that far.
The number of severe violators who can cause the most workers’ compensation claims is staggering, even in New York. If you’ve been the victim of employer negligence and need help navigating the workers’ comp claim process, contact us today.

They kept my best interests at heart. Updates on a regular basis of the status of the case and returning of calls was much more prompt after I started dealing with the same lawyers and support team.
