OSHA Proposes Fining Local Manufacturer For Multiple Safety Violations
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has proposed a 610 thousand dollar penalty against operators of a Groveport plant for exposing workers to machine hazards and harmful levels of silica. The agency says a maintenance worker's leg was crushed in a machine in January at the Amsted Rail Company plant. OSHA also found multiple machine safety violations, and found four workers had been exposed to unsafe levels of silica. The company has yet to comment.
