This organization is one of hundreds of federal agencies who prosper and grow through regulating productive, job producing businesses. You should know that OSHA and MSHA employ Gestapo like tactics when they identify violations of their myriad bureaucratic imperatives. Their focus is on fining and "shaming" (their word) corporations, rather than actually trying to constructively improve safety. Most corporations welcome advice from their employees and any other source(s) that will serve to improve workplace safety but, the appearance of these organizations, onsite, sends chills through the spines of plant management whereas they should be welcomed as an informed asset whose goal is to improve plant safety to the benefit of both the employee and company. Like many federal agencies, who suck on the government tit, they simply work to fine and intimidate productive, well intentioned companies while expanding their mission and thereby their size. Since when, in these United States, are persons or corporations, besmirched as guilty through issuance of press releases, until proven innocent?

Now, if OSHA would visit the municipal buildings that the mayor claimed were hazardous, we could get confirmation of the working conditions here.
