    Danger on the docks: Del Monte fined for forklift accidents, hazards – By Charlie Morasch, Land Line Magazine, MO
    “This investigation revealed numerous safety hazards at the Del Monte plant that could have caused even more accidents and injuries,” said Michael Wood, administrator of Oregon OSHA. “If we are going to prevent injuries before they occur, employers must be held accountable for hazards in their workplaces and take steps to correct them.”

    Oregon OSHA said its investigation had been under way before June 12, 2007, when the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency raided the Portland plant and detained 167 workers.
