Retail Chain Cited for Repeat Violations
OSHA has cited Dollar Tree Stores for two repeat safety violations: blocked fire exits and unsafe storage of stock items: at its Newark location. Proposed penalties total $121,000.
The retail chain had previously been cited in 2008, 2010, and 2011 for similar violations at both New Jersey and New York locations. A repeat violation exists when an employer has been cited for the same or a similar violation at any other facility in federal enforcement states within the last five years.
These types of violations are often found at retail stores, says OSHA. It is imperative that Dollar Tree evaluate all of its locations for these and other potential workplace hazards, work with its employees to identify the hazards, and take the appropriate steps to eliminate them.
