Recent OSHA Citations

Individuals who violate employees’ rights may be cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. If you suspect your company is engaging in illegal or discriminatory behavior, do not be afraid to report them because you are protected against employer retaliation.

Following are some of the OSHA’s citations for the months of March and April 2013:

  • US Department of Labor’s OSHA cited Pilgrim’s Pride Corp. in Canton, Ga., for repeat and serious violations following a worker fatality
  • A New Jersey laundry company was fined by OSHA for $219,000 for safety hazards
  • Ball Aerosol and Specialty Container Inc. was fined $589,000 by the U.S. Labor Department’s OSHA for exposing workers to amputation hazards machinery that was unguarded

  • After a worker was injured by a fall, a Ridgefield, NJ roofing contractor was fined more than $57,000 by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
