Senate Hearing on Workplace Safety Bad Actors

The Senate HELP Subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety, chaired by Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), will hold a hearing on Tuesday, April 1, 2008 entitled “Serious OSHA Violations: Strategies for Breaking Dangerous Patterns.”  The subcomittee has not yet released a witness list, but I’d expect to hear something about some of the bad actors profiled in the “Dirty Dozen” report, prepared in 2006 by the National COSH.

    Hi Celeste, :)

    For fatalities reported to Oregon OSHA, you might want to try here:

    And yes, it is very surprising how young some of these heart attack fatalities are. Unfortunately the tables on the website don’t provide the age, but Oregon OSHA generally collects this information.
