Dollar Tree Stores Fined By OSHA

PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon OSHA is fining Dollar Tree Stores $32,000 for failing to resolve safety issues for employees. Some of the issues include unsecured materials that fall on employees, tripping and falling in cramped aisles, and inaccessible fire extinguishers and emergency exits. The problems were found at several Dollar Tree stores.  Dollar Tree was told to fix the potential hazards previously, when inspectors returned and didn’t find the hazards removed the  large fine was imposed. Dollar Tree has a month to appeal the fine.
