FCI Miami Cited By OSHA For Poor Conditions, Safety Violations

Workplace safety violations are making it dangerous for both the guards and inmates at the Federal Correctional Institution in Miami.

The Miami New Times obtained an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) report that found: 

  • Lots of mold within the facility
  • Leaking ceilings 
  • Poorly trained staff
  • A policy that doesn't give enough bathroom breaks to some employees
  • Workers lacking basic security equipment 

According to the OSHA report, inmates with histories of violent attacks were also being transferred to FCI Miami, a low-security institution, where guards were not properly trained or equipped to take care of them.

Prison managers were also cited for failing to report multiple on-site injuries.

OSHA has made a series of recommendations to improve conditions at the prison.

FCI Miami houses up to 1,300 male inmates.
