Osha Fines $85,360 To Dehler Manufacturing Company

OSHA has fined Dehler Manufacturing Company with 24 serious violations out of which four are repeat and other 6 violations of federal workplace health safety standards which all together leads to $85,360 of penalties to the company.

This company was into investigation by OSHA from February after which it received a health hazard report from NIOSH. The health hazard report revealed out that the hazard were so toxic that it could lead to a person’s hearing damage, with lack of personal protective equipment and lack of communication program. A serious violation was being cited to the company when there was a probability that death or serious harm could lead to a hazard which the employer should have known of.

The repeat violations which were cited included problems with respirator programs and lack of medical evaluation with fire extinguisher programs. The OSHA repeat violations are cited when the investigators find out that a similar violation of any standard which have been facilitated other than federal government states.

So the company Dehler Manufacturing has 15 business days from the receipt of citations to comply which would request an informal conference with OSHA director leading to proposed penalties before the OSHA Commission.
