    Employers finding way around OSHA's tougher stance - by Alexandra Berzon, Las Vegas Sun
    No one saw Michael Taylor fall to his death at the Cosmopolitan construction site nearly a year ago.

    But in the investigation after his death, state inspectors found that one of the posts that held up a guardrail system had collapsed. A mistake by one of the many contractors on the site, it seemed, had created the conditions that caused Taylor to fall five floors.

    But in the end, no one was held responsible for the safety problems that led to Taylor's death.

    That conclusion was reached Sept. 2 by the Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration appeals board, even as the agency — stung by appearances it was not aggressively dealing with construction deaths on the Strip — was adopting a new, get-tough attitude in holding employers responsible for workplace safety violations.
