OSHA Fines USPS $210,000 At Eagan Facility

According to the Star Tribune

The U.S. Postal Service “knowingly put its workers in harm’s way” at its Eagan processing center by exposing employees to the potential for electrical shock, prompting federal officials to levy $210,000 in fines, U.S. officials announced Tuesday.

The allegations from the Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) contend that the Postal Service (USPS):

• Failed to provide required safety training for its workers.

• Did not ensure employees used proper safety-related practices while operating electrical equipment.

• Did not provide workers with the proper safety equipment

According to APWU up until today the recent citations bring the Postal Service’s total fines to nearly $2.5 million. Now with the $210,000 in fines announced today the total stands at $2.7 Million
