Jackson Lewis Information:

  • “At a recent American Bar Association meeting, Jordan Barab, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, DorothyDougherty, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA and Tom Galassi, Director of Enforcement Programs, all stressed the agency’s continued focus on key enforcement initiatives, such as temporary workers, workplace violence and heat stress.  In addition, use of the severe violator enhancement program (SVEP)… it was made clear that OSHA continues to see enforcement, as opposed to compliance assistance, as its primary objective.”

  • More money, more inspectors, interview temporary staff

  • June 18 - advantageMAPLEWOOD, N.J. – Maplewood Beverage Packers LLC and temporary employment agency Corporate Resource Services Corp. in Elizabeth have been cited by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration for health and safety violations found at the beverage bottling company's Maplewood plant. OSHA's December 2013 investigation, which found willful and repeat violations, was initiated following a referral from the Maplewood Fire Department after a temporary worker was injured after falling from a ladder. OSHA has proposed $182,270 in penalties.

  • Corporate Resources Services. OSHA cited two serious health and safety violations for failure to conduct a hazard assessment of the workplace, ensure that each employee was informed of the effects of noise on hearing and inform each employee about hearing protectors. The serious violations carry an $11,000 penalty.
