OSHA’s findings challenged by Buffalo Recycling

A workplace incident that took place last October resulted in OSHA investigating into the working procedures of Buffalo Recycling Enterprises LLC. The investigations revealed a number of violations and the company was cited by OSHA.

OSHA announced recently that the company was cited with 10 serious violations after an investigation was conducted following an incident where a workers arm was found to be severely lacerated on October 7 last year. The worker’s arm got caught in a conveyor belt, which accidently got activated when he was trying to clear a paper jam.

OSHA has also said that the penalties for these 10 violations amount to $60,000 in fines and an additional $1,000 for 5 other-than-serious violations. The company has decided to contest these findings.
