OSHA fines for Fall hazard, Xylem Inc faces $234k in penalties

A worker for Xylem Inc., a Pewaukee-based water technology corporation, injured when a guardrail loosened and he slipped, striking his head on a support beam as he lowered himself into a roughly 30-foot deep water test tank. On October 29, 2020, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the United States Department of Labor sent a report of the incident. Inspectors later found that the firm subjected workers to walking-working surface risks, refused to provide employees with fall cover until accessing a 100-by-24-foot water-testing pit, and failed to implement basic permit-required confined space safety protocols prior to entering the water test pits. OSHA proposed $234,054 in fines for one intentional and eight serious violations.
