Auto Parts Manufacturer Fined $106,000 for Repeat Safety Violations
For its part in the violations, the staffing agency will pay $18,900. OSHA cited the staffing agency for the following violations:
- Failure to train employees on all hazards present in the workplace
- Exposing employees to amputation hazards, caught-in and struck-by hazards
- Machine guarding violations related to crimpers and mechanical presses in the workplace
See full safety enforcement new release on OSHA.gov.
It’s crucial that both the on-site employer and the staffing agency or temporary work placement firm take steps to protect workers from the hazards present on the job. Under OSHA’s 29 CFR work safety standards, these entities share responsibility for each employee’s safety.

I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
Best instructor ever! I was going to take my DOT training w/a different provider, but based on this presentation, I will also be doing my DOT training w/Lion!

The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.

Lion courses are the standard to which all other workshops should strive for!
Registered Environmental Health Specialist
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
Hazardous Waste Professional
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
Environmental, Health & Safety Regional Manager
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
As always, Lion never disappoints
