OSHA Cites Wisconsin Facility for Repeat Safety Violations

The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)has cited a Duraframe Dipnet facility in Wisconsin with 20 safety violations, according to WorkersCompensation.com. Three of the violations were listed as repeat violations; allowing the accumulation of combustible material in a paint spray area, failure to have a tongue guard on a grinding wheel and failure to guard a belt on a lathe.

“Employers such as Duraframe Dipnet that are cited for repeat violations demonstrate a lack of commitment to workers’ safety and health,” said OSHA’s regional director Kim Stille. “OSHA is committed to protecting workers on the job, especially when employers fail to do so.”

The proposed fines total $71,400. OSHA inspected the facility based on a complaint filed in November 2011. Duraframe Dipnet has been inspected by OSHA three times previously, resulting in five violations.

If you notice safety violations or any other hazards in your workplace, you can report them anonymously to OSHA by calling 1-800-321-6742. It is in everyone’s best interest to report all safety violations. You are protecting yourself and fellow workers from possible injury or death, do not be afraid to speak up.
