OSHA cites Minnesota-based Best Buy for Safety Violations
OSHA has recently cited the Best Buy Company on Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth for 5 various safety violations, following an incident where a worker suffered from severe head injuries from a fall. According to reports, the employee was stacking television sets on a storage rack while standing on an elevated industrial truck’s platform, when it suddenly shifted and caused the employee to fall about 12 feet.

2 repeat violations were found for failing to provide the employees with personal protective equipment and for not putting up guardrails for a 12 feet fall hazard. A repeat violation was found as well. 1 serious violation was found for allowing modifications to be made to a powered truck without seeking manufacturer’s approval by shutting the drive limit switch. 2 other-than-serious violations were found for failing to fill out the OSHA 300 log for workplace illnesses and injuries and for failing to certify the log in 2008 and 2009.
