OSHA announces new silica dust regulation

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration released a proposal for new rules about a well-known workplace hazard - silica dust. For those in the construction and manufacturing industries silica dust is a well-recognized threat. The recent growth in natural gas fracking has exposed a new group of workers to the chemical, which is used commonly in fracking fluids that are pumped into the ground to help drive out the natural gas.

Transportation Safety Administration cited for workplace hazards

The Transportation Safety Administration apparently has not done enough at one East Coast airport to protect employees who work near a conveyer belt from injuries. A recent inspection at that airport yielded 14 citations for those in charge of airport security at a particular airport.

Man says coworkers, boss, harassed him with a taser

A man has filed a lawsuit against his former employer after what he says was more than four years of harassment on the job. Specifically, he says he was tasered by coworkers repeatedly and that the incidents were filmed by his boss. The harassment lasted for several years while the man worked at the car dealership. He says he was unable to leave his job because he needed the income. He told reporters that he was unable to sleep, always looking over his shoulder, and suffered from increased anxiety that he would let his guard down and be shocked by a taser.
