OSHA Cites Ohio Manufacturer for Repeat Violation

The U.S. Department o f Labor’s Occupation Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Colfor Manufacturing Inc. in Malvern, Ohio for four safety violations, according to OHSOnline.com. Colfor manufactures auto parts using hot and cold forging methods. One of the citations is for a repeat violation for failing to protect workers. During an October 2011 inspection, OSHA determined that employees were exposed to “energy sources.” OSHA cited Colfor for the same violation in February of 2010.

“Employers who are cited for repeat OSHA violations demonstrate a lack of commitment to employee safety and health,” says Columbus OSHA Director Deb Zubaty. “Employers are responsible for knowing the hazards that exist in their workplaces and implementing relevant safety standards. OSHA is committed to protecting workers, even when employers fail to do so.”
