A judge upheld safety penalties against United Airlines over an accident in 2021 that resulted in an employee losing five toes when their foot was run over by an aircraft’s tire.

The ruling allows the Occupational Safety & Hazard Administration to levy $14,502 in fines against United Airlines for the accident that happened on Nov. 24, 2021, at Newark Liberty International Airport. A decision had been made in April by the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission, but the airline petitioned for an appeal late last month, OSHA officials said.

United Airlines did not immediately respond to a request from NJ Advance Media for comment.
