Klamath Falls Restaurant Fined Almost $28K by Oregon OSHA

KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Casey's Restaurant in Klamath Falls faces almost $28,000 in fines from Oregon OSHA after the agency said it fell "well short of workplace safety standards" for coronavirus.

According to OSHA, Casey's "willfully" remained open for indoor dining while the county was under Extreme Risk restrictions. The agency said that this is the second time that the restaurant has been cited for a similar violation of public health orders, having been fined $8,900 after an inspection in December.

“Since the pandemic began, we have focused our efforts on engaging and educating employers about expectations. In the vast majority of cases, we have not had to conduct formal enforcement visits, because most employers are choosing to do the right thing,” said Michael Wood, administrator for Oregon OSHA. “Yet, a critical part of Oregon OSHA’s longstanding mission is to enforce workplace health and safety standards. And we will continue to fulfill that mission when employers refuse to address credible complaints or continue to insist on ignoring reasonable safeguards for their employees.”

OSHA said that the most recent citation stemmed from an inspection prompted by complaints and a referral from Klamath County Public Health. The inspection found that the restaurant allowed indoor dining from December 17 through February 11.
