Workers' rights focus of OSHA and ISRA collaboration

Colorado workers in the scrap recycling industry may find comfort in learning that there a cooperative effort involving the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries promotes improved safety. Workers' rights include the right to work environments that are free of known hazards. Nevertheless, the number of workplace accidents within this industry seems to indicate that some employers have little regard for worker safety.

Employee injured at work after company commits repeat violations

Compliance with federal safety regulations seems to be a nationwide problem. Some company owners in Colorado and elsewhere put worker safety second to company profits. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently expressed its disappointment in a lumber company in another state after learning of an unreported May incident in which a worker was injured at work in similar circumstances that led to citations only three months prior.
