The U.S. Postal Service faces roughly $8,000 in proposed fines after an Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigation in June found several “serious” safety violations at the Henry Street postal facility, according to the OSHA report.
The report states:
* Exit routes were not free and unobstructed but blocked by wire cages, a pallet tilt machine and other materials and/or equipment.
* Sufficient access and working space in front of some circuit breaker panels were not provided to permit ready and safe operation and maintenance of the equipment.
* Employees performing troubleshooting on or near live energized circuits were not provided with proper protective equipment.
