Foreign Student Labor Protests at Hershey Co. Center Lead to Citations for Exel, SHS Staffing

PennLive (02/22/12) David Wenner

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Exel Inc. and SHS Staffing Solutions for various violations months after foreign students said they had been exploited while working at a Hershey Co. distribution center. OSHA cited Exel, which operates the distribution center for Hershey, for alleged violations that include neglecting to keep track of work-related injuries and illnesses and neglecting to carry out a sound program to protect workers’ hearing. OSHA also cited SHS, the staffing company that hired the students. SHS could be fined $5,000 for allegedly neglecting to properly train the workers. Exel and SHS have 15 business days to comply with the penalties, contest them, or request additional information.
