OSHA Cites AFL Web Printing, Proposes $170K in Penalties
“AFL Web Printing is unnecessarily putting its workers at risk of serious injury and possible death,” said Paula Dixon-Roderick, director of OSHA’s Marlton Area Office. “OSHA will continue its efforts to hold this company responsible for failing to comply with federal laws.”
AFL Web Printing, which has 260 employees, provides web printing, finishing and circulation services for publishers.
The company has 15 business days from receipt of the citations to comply, ask for an informal conference with OSHA’s area director or contest the citations and proposed penalties before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. The investigation was conducted by OSHA’s Marlton office; telephone 856-596-5200. To report workplace incidents, fatalities or situations posing imminent danger to workers, call the agency’s toll-free hotline at 800-321-OSHA (6742).
Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees.
