No OSHA fines issued in our region

EASTERN OREGON – Oregon OSHA recently made a press release available addressing complaints made about Oregon businesses that have not complied with the governor’s executive orders. Elkhorn Media Group reached out to OSHA and were told that no fines were made in Union, Wallowa, or Baker county businesses.

The full text of the release follows below:

As Oregon OSHA continues to process and evaluate complaints related to COVID-19, the division encourages workers and members of the public to use its online workplace hazard reporting form.

While people may still call the division with complaints, the online reporting form offers a quicker way to bring concerns to the division’s attention.

“We will continue to take phone calls about workplace hazards concerning the novel coronavirus,” said Michael Wood, administrator for Oregon OSHA. “However, our online system is just as fast – if not faster – at absorbing complaints and allowing us to efficiently respond to them.”
