OSHA and SeaWorld at odds over investigation

SeaWorld, a Florida company, remains on the radar of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, even after being investigated nearly two years ago. The investigation began after a trainer was grabbed and drowned by a killer whale in February 2010. The workplace accident was highly publicized and left SeaWorld under the supervision of OSHA for some time.

Study finds injuries often go unreported

Many workers in Florida know the dangers of their jobs. But the question is, does the public?
