Dollar General deals with restrictions for Georgia store problems

(MENAFN) Dollar General deals with almost USD1.3 million in restrictions when administration examiners went to three of the chain's stores in Georgia earlier in 2022 and noticed worker-safety violations, in agreement with federal managers on Monday.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration stated its inspectors saw blocked exit ways, boxes of merchandise loaded unsafely and electrical panels that were hard to enter, declaring those were “violations often cited at Dollar General locations.”

As of 2017, OSHA has offered at least USD6.5 million in penalties following 78 examinations at Dollar General locations nationwide, and over USD450,000 in penalties because of three inspections in Georgia.

The agency went on to announce that its inspectors often find unsafe conditions that endanger put staff and that might cause disaster for workers and customers in an emergency.

“Dollar General continues to demonstrate a willful pattern of ignoring hazardous working conditions and a disregard for the well-being of its employees,” in step with Doug Parker, OSHA's assistant secretary of occupational safety and health.

He added “Despite similar citations and sizable penalties in more than 70 inspections, the company refuses to change its business practices."
