We Have Mail!Sometimes people read this blog and get quite exercised. (Which is the point of this exercise.)
This is in response to the posting I did on OSHA’s cancellation of the nursing home inititiative.
What a farce! If we don't need this how come our Workers' Compensation rates continue to soar in this area? If the money employers spent on controvert claims was put into enough good ergonomic equipment, training and staff we could all become winners. OSHA has sold the workers out. Why put money into equipment and staff when it's a lot cheaper to pay a $1600 penalty and then controvert any injured workers' claim with one your Corporate lawyers?Couldn't have said it better myself.
