OSHA Fines Two Facilities in Northern Ohio

Officials from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have issued fines to two Ohio companies after inspecting a manufacturing plant in Erie County and a grain storage facility Fulton County, according to the Toledo Blade.

OSHA cited Kyklos Bearing International LLC, in Sandusky, for exposing workers to asbestos while working on a boiler. Proposed fines for Kyklos total $65,000.

The other facility in Northern Ohio that recently received fines was Gerald Grain Center Inc., in Napoleon. OSHA officials issued eight serious citations at the facility, mostly related to electrical issues. Proposed fines for that facility total $19,530.

OSHA offices are typically assigned to cover a large region, sometimes even crossing state lines. It is nearly impossible for these offices with limited resources to inspect all facilities as regularly as they should. OSHA often relies on anonymous complaints from workers at these facilities. If your employer is putting you at risk, you can alert OSHA anonymously with no fear of retaliation—you are protected under whistleblower protection laws.
