OSHA has spent allot of money, for sure. I do understand Wall Marts viewpoint. The incident that happened is a common occurrence at locations of huge gatherings. We have seen this crowd behavior for many years. OSHA needs to develop a standard for this, and not penalize the company, but penalize people's mentality in a crowd! The money and resources can be better used for future control and awareness. Because it happens at profit making locations where employees are hired, I believe it is an occupational Hazard.
