Pennsylvania Printer in Trouble with OSHA

June 18, 2010
1
WAYMART, PA—S.G. Printing has been cited for alleged repeated and serious workplace safety and health violations by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and faces fines in excess of $107,000, the Wayne Independent reported.

A safety and health complaint prompted an OSHA investigation last December. Citations were issued on four repeat violations totaling just under $75,000 and nine "serious" violations that carry a penalty of $32,850, the paper reported.

According to the Independent, the violations include deficiencies in the company's lockout/tagout procedures, inadequate machine guarding and combustible dust hazards. The 35-employee company has 15 business days to comply or contest the citations, or request an informal conference with a local OSHA director.
