FORT BRAGG, NC (AP) -- The U.S. Labor Department has found more than 35 safety and health violations during a recent inspection at Fort Bragg, including some that exposed civilian workers to hazards such as power saw blades. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says it found minor violations and more serious ones, such as ones that exposed workers to electrical shocks and falls from dangerous heights. The Fayetteville Observer reported ( ) that OSHA spokesman Michael Wald says the agency monitors safety conditions for civilians and contractors working on military installations. Wald says it's not clear if the conditions led to any injuries because Fort Bragg didn't keep detailed records, which is a violation. Fort Bragg spokesman Ben Abel says all the problems should be fixed within a few days. (Copyright 2011 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
