Convenience Store Where Employed Died in Robbery Cited for Lack of Safety Protections

One willful citation was issued to Jay Management Inc.

OSHA has issued one willful citation to Jay Management Inc., according to an agency news release. The citation comes as a result of an investigation that opened after a robbery led to a gunshot wound for a store associate at an Irvington, N.J., location on Oct. 28, 2015. The employee later died, resulting in the willful citation.

OSHA has proposed $14,000 in penalties.

"In the past five years, 20 workplace violence incidents involving theft, armed robbery, and fights occurred at this store. Jay Management was well aware of this history and, even after the death of its employee in October the employer did nothing to implement safety measures to protect employees. This disregard for employee safety is unacceptable and will not be tolerated," said Kris Hoffman, OSHA's area director in Parsippany.
