(Wrongful Termination Lawyers & Legal Information), 2000.
Legal Encounter 3:
If Paul can prove OSHA violations exist in regards to confined spaces,
then he may very well have a case. However, if the area is deemed safe by OSHA
standards then Paul may need to seek another type of job. If the workplace contains spaces considered "confined" because its configurations hinder the activities of employees who enter, work in, or exit, this is considered a violation. Also confined spaces having limited or restricted entry or exit options then it is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. OSHA uses the term "permit-required confined space" (permit space) to describe a confined space which means
it has to be held to their standards. (OSHA: Confined Spaces, 2008)
Newcorp must make sure the area Paul works in meets OSHA standards to protect itself
from legal action. If the space does not, the company should meet Paul’s demands and correct any OSHA violations the confined space has so in the future the same problem does not occur.
