Calling OSHA

Just wondering what would happen.
Let's say, """hypothetically""", my building is completely inadequate for the amount of volume we process.
I'm talking floor-to-ceiling bricked out exit doors, the belt backed up 30+ feet with stuff falling off the side, zero room to walk in the aisle, having to step over boxes and stack outs, egress a distant afterthought, rental trucks pulled up to the building with huge gaps between the truck and the building like a pitfall, having to step up and down 3+ feet into the rental 500+ times a morning while ducking head, almost snapping ankle a couple times an hour, and so on. The works.
I want to emphasize that none of this can be remedied by simply hiring more people and that the building itself is too small to handle the volume.
If I call OSHA can I get this whole operation shut down until UPS builds something bigger? Just wondering.

Do you need an air compressor or tire gauge

You can shut it down by simply shutting the belt off until egress is clear.

Coronavirus? What coronavirus?
If I decide I'm not a lifer, I'd consider taking my last couple weeks to call OSHA on my building for all the garbage that goes down. Might get my coworkers at least a couple days of decent flow before things went back to normal/I was escorted out.

Perhaps, as things are changing on this front.

As a result of some of recent OSHA Charges, the decade old "corporate-wide settlement agreement" in regards to egress has been vacated.

There will never be a better time if you are serious about effectuating change.

I assume you have just described 90% of the UPS buildings on any given work day. If you do call OSHA though don't be surprised if the day they show up things are all cleaned up when they get there.--It's funny how stuff like that happens. :-)
