Settlement reached in tragic 2010 mining accident

People in Columbus, Ohio may remember the terrible coal mining accident that occurred in April 2010. It left 29 men dead and would have certainly led to a large amount of wrongful death lawsuits if a settlement had not been reached recently.

OSHA Fines US Postal Service Center in Dayton, Ohio

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently cited a U.S. Postal Service processing center in Dayton for various willful and serious safety violations. As a result of the citations, the facility faces a total of $225,000 in fines and must correct the safety violations. At this time, there have not been any specific reports of serious injuries, deaths, or workers' compensation claims, but there have reportedly been safety-related complaints from a number of employees.
 
The terms "willful violation" and "serious violation" have specific meanings in the context of this particular investigation. According to OSHA, a "willful" violation is committed with the employer's intentional, knowing, or voluntary disregard for legal requirements or plain indifference to the safety and health of employees. On the other hand, a "serious violation" is one in which death or serious physical harm can result from a danger that the employer knew about or should have known about.
