August 6 - August 12, 2012

A Pennsylvania painting company owner faces criminal charges for the electrocution of an employee. Authorities say he ignored the presence of high-power lines on a job site. Is the charge fair?


Criminal charges are overkill, but he should face OSHA sanctions.
Yes. Employers are accountable for worker safety and welfare.
No. Workers should be accountable for their own safety.
