Connecticut town government pays fines for safety violations

Connecticut's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or CONN-OSHA, is known for responding to complaints or work accidents and imposing fines on private employers who provide their employees with an unsafe working environment. However, CONN-OSHA also conducts random inspections and can impose fines on even government agencies when they violate safety standards.

The workers' compensation system in Connecticut covers many types of injuries sustained while at work. However, typically the key element that the injured must prove is that the injury was work-related.

It can be trickier when the injury is cumulative, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or repetitive strain injury.
