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.

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.
