SCHUMER STATEMENT ON OSHA FINES ON VERLA COSMETICS

“OSHA fines on Verla Cosmetics send a strong signal that businesses must take every precaution to protect their workers and first responders from fire threats. This tragic fire revealed a gaping hole in how OSHA alerts local first responders about dangerous safety violations involving combustible liquids. Never again should our brave first responders be put in a situation where they walk blindly into a hazardous scene, and the hardworking employees who walk in and out of their workplaces each every day should feel safe on the job,” said U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer.
