Lowe’s to pay $90,000 OSHA fine

Lowe’s has agreed to pay the federal government $90,000 as part of a settlement with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the Cincinnati region, according to an article in the Dayton Daily News

OSHA inspectors accused Lowe’s of “continually failing" to document and report employee injuries and illnesses in two stores: one located in Huber Heights and the other in the Cincinnati suburb of Colerain Township. But the agreement with OSHA covers 24 southern and southwest Ohio stores, where Lowe’s has agreed to review three years of medical records for work-related injury claims.

As part of the settlement, the North Carolina retailer has not admitted any violations of the federal workplace safety law.
