OSHA alleged, among other things, that Home Depot employees were not wearing appropriate foot protection, namely, steel toe shoes. We were preparing for trial, including the introduction of expert witness testimony on the foot protection citation, when the Secretary of Labor withdrew the citations before trial, resulting in a complete victory for Home Depot.
