Introduction

I've reported quite a lot about Dollar General in the past 18 months.

Many of those articles were about Dollar General stores in Ohio being fined for overcharging customers and being investigated.

But now, in the state of North Dakota, several Dollar General stores have been fined for not having their workspaces managed in a safe way.

Let's dive into it.

Dollar General, 2023

According to the Inforum article, published on May 23, federal workplace safety inspectors discovered hazardous working conditions at several stores. The affected locations include stores situated in Casselton, Garrison, Hillsboro, Killdeer, Minot, and Tioga.

The inspectors found instances where exit routes, doors, fire extinguishers, and electrical panels were obstructed. Additionally, the merchandise was found to be unsafely stacked.

These violations raise concerns about the stores' compliance with safety regulations and their ability to effectively respond to emergencies.

Following a two-month investigation that concluded in December, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identified a total of 32 violations in North Dakota. As a result, OSHA proposed a penalty of $2.5 million for these violations.
