MillerCoors fined for alleged safety violations

The Denver Post reports that MillerCoors, Colorado's largest brewer, has been fined by federal regulators after one worker died and two others were injured at the Golden plant.

It's worth remembering that brewing giants such as MillerCoors are huge, industrial operations, with all the trappings of any other heavy industry.

In my four years in Durango, I haven't heard of any workplace injuries at Durango's four breweries. Which doesn't necessarily mean it hasn't happened, but there doesn't seem to be any history of problems.

Some of those guys lug around a lot of weight, in addition to electrical dangers. So it always pays to be careful.
