OSHA cites manufacturer for amputation risk

OSHA has cited Parker Hannifin Corp. with nine safety violations at its metal fabricating plant in Grantsburg, Wisconsin.

An inspection was initiated after OSHA received a complaint. Proposed penalties total $123,000. Two alleged repeat violations were for failing to protect workers from amputation and electrical hazards by using machine guards and conducting inspections of energy control procedures.

Parker Hannifin Corp. is headquartered in Cleveland and has facilities throughout the United States. The employer has a history of previous violations at its Mississippi, New York, and Ohio operations.

 “Employers are responsible for establishing a safe environment and taking all necessary precautions to protect workers against amputation hazards and other known workplace dangers,” said OSHA Area Director Mark Hysell.
