OSHA cited the company for exposing workers to electrical, lead, and machine-guarding hazards. Six repeat violations were for problems with fire extinguishers, machine guarding, and electrical safety.

The same employer was cited for violations in 2009 and 2001 at the Ohio site and at other U.S. facilities. In response to the alleged violations, an OSHA official said the agency “will not tolerate such negligence.”

OSHA has placed the company in its Severe Violator Enforcement Program (SVEP), which focuses on recalcitrant employers that endanger workers. Under the SVEP, OSHA can inspect any of the employer’s locations if it believes there are similar violations.
