ST. PAUL, Minn. — State OSHA inspectors have visited the Minnesota Security Hospital after a concern was raised about worker safety.
Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry spokesman James Honerman confirmed Friday to Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/HH2gTa) that OSHA inspectors made an unannounced visit to the St. Peter hospital on March 13.
The agency has not yet completed the inspection process. Honerman says no details will be provided for several weeks.
OSHA’s last inspection of a worker safety complaint at the Minnesota Security Hospital was in 1991. That inspection did not result in any citations.
The hospital for the mentally ill and dangerous has been in turmoil for months, culminating in the forced resignation of top administrator David Proffitt in late March.
