Health workers stressed about being hurt on the job

Losing a loved one in a tragic workplace accident can place many burdens on family members -- emotional, physical and financial. Though it may not be possible to quantify their loss, the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Division does just that when they fine businesses for safety violations that lead to workplace injuries or deaths. However, as an investigative report recently learned, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration often reduces or even removes these fines, allowing businesses to get away with their violations in the eyes of safety experts.
