CBS2 - A Long Island man made a shocking discovery recently, as a FedEx driver was seen tossing packages into his truck like balls in a sporting event. As CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported, it was all caught on camera. Jim Munson ships plenty of packages — reselling pre-owned treasures. But he has recently been on the receiving end of plenty of complaints about items arriving damaged. “Plates were cracked. There were some random VHS tapes; just little items that could be; that were clearly marked fragile,” Munson said. So Munson took his curiosity, and his cellphone, to his local FedEx location in East Northport and recorded how precious cargo was being handled.

CBS News - A farm worker overcome by fumes while loading pig manure onto a truck in Ohio; a convenience store clerk shot during an attempted robbery in New Jersey. Both men are among the 150 job-related fatalities in the U.S. every day, many of which federal regulators say are preventable. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) this month proposed fines against the companies involved in these two incidents, saying employee safety had been disregarded. On average, 13 workers were fatally injured and more than 10,000 were hurt or made ill every day in 2014, according to a report released this week.
