Hunter Mountain fined by OSHA

Jul 26, 2012 5:36 am
Joe Mahoney reports in the Oneonta Daily Star the Hunter Mountain ski resort faces proposed federal penalties of $8,500 following the death of a worker who slipped while working on snow-making equipment and fell down a 200-foot embankment earlier this year. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Hunter Mountain failed to provide workers with training on the "limitations" of using spiked footwear devices to prevent slipping or falling while working near snow gear. The agency also said Hunter did not require its workers to carry radio or communication devices so they could call for help if needed. Hunter Mountain general manager Russ Colton said that the company will challenge the findings. Read the full story at the Daily Star.
