Resorts World contractors fined by OSHA

From the Daily News:

Construction workers toiled virtually around the clock to get Queens’ glitzy gaming hub operational, but federal officials are now charging that contractors cut corners when it came to safety.

Five companies skirted regulations during construction of the Aqueduct racino this summer and exposed employees to hazardous conditions, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Monday.

The agency slapped fines totaling more than $127,000 on five contractors for serious violations, including contact with high levels of lead.

Too little,too late. Maybe they should have been there when this was going on. Oh! I get it, they didn't want to get in the way of the revenue stream...
