Ohio plant fined $816,500 for OSHA violations

OSHA violations can be costly but training can help ensure compliance.

OSHA violations can be costly but training can help ensure compliance.

For businesses operating in industries like manufacturing, it's essential to pay close attention to how well workers are being trained to handle the duties of their jobs, especially when those duties involve work that is hazardous when not performed correctly.

The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) exists to help make sure that workers are safe on the job. When OSHA comes by for an inspection, companies that have not been keeping up with safety standards may receive a violation and a fine. 

According to an OSHA press release, a plant in Sidney, OH, Formed Fiber Technologies LLC, was fined $816,500. It was determined that the company had continued to expose workers to hazards, and even submitted false documentation pertaining to previous violations, claiming they had been corrected when they actually had not.  

In addition to the willful and repeat violations that put workers in serious danger, OSHA found that this company did not provide training about how to maintain machines without running the risk of amputation and other injuries. 

With adequate training, companies can stay in compliance with OSHA standards. Knowing the proper safety requirements can help ensure a safe workplace and mitigate the risk of worker injuries and costly fines. 

With a learning management system, you can keep your employees up to speed with everything they need to know to be safe and effective workers. By implementing a comprehensive training program, you can ensure that members of your company are aware of the safety procedures that accompany their jobs, and that your workplace stays safe and compliant.
