    My husband was burnt at his place of employment

    he suffered severe burns at his place of employment, but it was not work related, because his employer had an old truck in the building that he and other employees would go help work on. Is this and OSHA violation?

    I'm so sorry to hear about his tragedy, I definitely think that it is a violation and that his employer should be held responsible because it was at his work place even though theoretically it wasn't work related. Was it on work time?

      He is on salary, but it was after his usual to go home. He has scaring in his chest and forehead.  Radiator cap popped off, antifreeze was in the radiator too. They had him file it under workman's comp.  The medical bills were paid. Is there a SOL?
