Pep Boys Cited for Electrical and Machine Guarding Hazards

Pep Boys Cited for Electrical and Machine Guarding Hazards
OSHA has said that workers in the Hamden store were exposed to electric hazards from damaged power cords, and were also exposed to cuts and lacerations from a grinder without any safety guard.

OSHA has cited the Pep Boys auto service company with 1 serious and 4 repeat violations after an inspection was conducted in its Hamden facility. The company currently faces a fine of $75,000.

The sizable amount of the fines issues reflects the fact that the company was previously cited as well for a number of workplace hazards in its Orange County location. OSHA recommends that the employers at its other stores and locations should find what other hazards exist and eliminate them in order to keep the employees safe.

OSHA also announced that the workers in the Hamden unit were exposed to electric hazards due to damaged power cords. They were also exposed to cuts and lacerations from a grinder that lacked a safety guard.
