OSHA has fined an aluminum parts manufacturer in Ohio for repeated safety violations. This year in March, a worker at General Aluminum Mfg Company died after a machine’s barrier door struck him. An investigation revealed that the company committed as many as 38 safety and health violations. The investigation ruled that General Aluminum had violated machine guarding and Lockout/Tagout procedures. So OSHA issued four repeat, 18 willful, and 16 serious safety and health violations. It also placed the company in the agency’s Severe Violator Enforcement Program following this incident. The fine on the company amounts to $ 1,671,738. General Aluminum has 15 working days to pay the fine or contest the findings before the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
