THE FASHION LAW EXCLUSIVE - The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Forever 21 with two more workplace safety standards violations following an inspection of the Burlington Mall Forever 21 store. The Los Angeles-based fast fashion giant has been slapped with $55,000 in potential fines following a December 2012 inspection by OSHA's Andover Area Office. OSHA cited Forever 21 in 2011 for similar hazards at its Bridgewater, N.J., store. According to Jeffrey A. Erskine, OSHA's area director for Middlesex and Essex counties in Massachusetts: "Improper storage of stock and inadequate exit routes can and do put workers at risk of serious and severe injury. Particularly disturbing is that these same hazards were previously found at another Forever 21 store. An employer with multiple locations, such as Forever 21, must ensure that safe and healthful working conditions are maintained at all its workplaces." According to OSHA, Forever 21 has 15 business days from receipt of its citations and proposed penalties to comply, meet informally with OSHA's area director or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
