Pennsylvania Facility Cited By OSHA for Repeat Violations

The US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Sandone Tire, a Scranton Dunlop Inc. facility with 19 safety violations, according to OHSOnline.com. The infractions discovered by OSHA during the inspection at the Scranton, Pennsylvania facility included four repeat violations. The penalty fines total $58,800.

The inspection was part of an OSHA initiative to crack down on facilities with high injury or illness rates. The repeat violations were for failure to ensure open-sided floors and platforms 4 feet or higher off the ground. Additionally, there were no clear exit paths for employees and belts and pulleys were not properly guarded. OSHA said they cited the company for the same violations in 2008.

11 of the violations were considered serious—including not providing railings on staircases, not providing water sprinklers at a paint spray booth, not providing fire extinguishers and failure to properly train workers on forklifts.
