OSHA cites Nebraska-based Fremont Beef for Safety Violations following an Amputation
OSHA has recently cited the Nebraska-based Fremont Beef Co. after a safety inspection was conducted at the facility. The inspection was conducted in response to a report that an amputation took place at the facility. The citations given out include 1 serious, 1 repeat and 1 other-than-serious violation. Most of the citations are directly related to the amputation.

It is every employer’s responsibility to ensure that the workplace is safe and healthy for workers. Safety should be the number one priority for employers and they should take all the necessary steps to eliminate any hazards from the workplace.

The serious violation was for failing to ensure that proper lockout/tagout devices were used by employees to de-energize the machines.
