OSHA Cites Ohio Facility for Safety Violations
The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited an automobile parts manufacturer in Huron, Ohio with 10 serious safety violations, according to the Toledo Blade. The International Automotive Components LLC facility where OSHA conducted its inspection is located about 65 miles southeast of Toledo. The company is headquartered in Southfield, Michigan.
OSHA came to inspect the facility after a complaint was filed when a worker had his finger crushed as a mold was lifted by a remote-controlled crane. International Automotive has 15 business days to appeal the violations or request a meeting with a regional OSHA director.
This was the first ever OSHA inspection at this particular facility. The fines total $59,500. OSHA has cited International Automotive facilities in Sidney and Canton a combined 7 times since 2007 and issued 22 violations.
