The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said that BP has ignored worker safety in relation to the cleanup of the oil spill you may or may not have heard of. They reported their findings to the Coast Guard saying BP’s failures to adequately protect workers involved in the oil spill cleanup efforts pose “potentially grave consequences” for their health. Unfortunately, their failure to look out for workers’ safety isn’t too surprising, considering its past record.
It seems BP has done nothing to seriously and systematically address the OSHA’s concerns of their “numerous deficiencies at several work sites and staging areas throughout the Gulf Coast region;” and that BP has failed to share critical health and safety information relating to the exposure and injuries of its cleanup workers.
BP repose was to say these problems were not isolated incidents.
