Dollar General Corp. faces $ 321,827 in proposed penalties after a recent investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of a store in Mobile, Alabama found that the country's largest discount retailer continues to expose workers to risks, citing three repeated violations at this location.  Since 2016, OSHA has proposed more than $ 3.3 million in penalties for 54 inspections at Dollar General locations across the country. Common violations include blocked electrical panels, blocked exits, forklifts, cleaning and sanitation, all of which expose workers to the risk of injury, OSHA said.
Dolgencorp LLC, for the third time, failed to ensure safe working conditions by not keeping order in the main storage to allow safe exit during an emergency, exposure to slippery and tripping hazards and being hit by falling boxes and prevented access to electrical panels. [1
