Auto Parts Manufacturer Fined $106,000 for Repeat Safety Violations

Posted on 8/11/2016 by Roger Marks

An auto parts manufacturer and its staffing agency will pay $106,000 in OSHA fines to settle allegations they failed to meet their responsibilities for providing a safe workplace. 
For its part in the violations, the staffing agency will pay $18,900. OSHA cited the staffing agency for the following violations:
The auto parts manufacturer will pay more—about $87,000—for failure to properly guard machines like crimpers, presses, air leak testers, endformers, and benders and thus exposing employees to amputation and crush-by hazards. Many of the employer’s violations are repeat violations, which inflates the penalty amount, and also led OSHA to consider including the employer in its Severe Violator Enforcement Program.

Machine guarding OSHA safety standard

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.
