Ashley Furniture to OSHA: Prove We Violated Safety RulesLA CROSSE, WI -- Lawyers for Ashley Furniture Industries released an official letter to OSHA disputing  its claims that the company had violated safety regulations, according to WKBT-TV.

The letter from Waters Law Group LLC is asking that OHSA proves its allegations that over 1,000 work-related injuries happened at Ashley's Arcadia, WI-plant over 3-1/2 years and that the $1.766 million fines are appropriate.

Ashley Furniture and OSHA will soon enter into mandatory mediation to resolve the issue.
