OSHA fines USPS in Jacksonville $129,336 for exposing mail carriers to August heat

You’ve probably heard the saying about postal workers: Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night is going to stop them from delivering your mail.

But the Occupational Safety and Health Administration doesn’t seem to agree.

OSHA accuses the Arlington post office on Merrill Road of putting mail carriers in danger by requiring them to deliver mail in high temperatures.

The federal agency issued USPS a $129,336 fine Jan. 24.

USPS began the process of contesting that fine Tuesday.
