Wal-Mart agrees to safety improvements
El Paso, TX (CNN) — Wal-Mart has agreed to new safety measures to protect employees who work with chemicals and trash compactors.
It's part of a settlement with the Department of Labor.
Wal-Mart will also pay a $190,000 fine to settle the matter.
The issue stems from violations found at a Rochester, New York store during an inspection performed by OSHA.
The agreement covers more than 2,800 stores in the 28 states that follow OSHA recommendations.
