This sounds really suspicious to me. I am quite sure OSHA would heartily disagree with this. If it's on US soil, I would think US standards apply. I mean, it doesn't even make sense. The whole point of all these rules and regulations is to protect the safety of US workers and to lessen the need for public safety and rescue services. I assume these were all US workers and I'm sure if they building caught on fire they'd call the local American fire department. To simply say "US standards don't apply" sounds like an owner who doesn't want to face reality.
