Disney’s OSHA Fine for Monorail Accident Reduced

20 January 2010 No Comment

The fine that Walt Disney World received for a violation that led to a monorail accident and worker’s death has been reduced substantially.

OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration had originally fined Disney $44,000 in December for violations that contributed to the July 5th, 2009 monorail accident.  The accident resulted in the death of a Disney employee.  The fine has now been reduced to $35,200.

Disney indicates that it is working with OSHA to resolve any further concerns, but did not comment further.  Disney was issued 4 violations by OSHA, all of which it says it will correct.
