OSHA cites Homerville plant for 22 violations

dupont yardOSHA has cited a Homerville company with 22 safety and health violations and proposed nearly $280,000 in penalties.

In a recent inspection, OSHA found three safety violations at Dupont Yard Inc. that it termed willful, including a failure to implement safety procedures that would prevent machinery from starting up or moving during maintenance, which exposed workers to possible amputation of limbs and other serious and possibly fatal injuries.

Also workers could have been caught in or crushed by rotating chains that had no guards, OSHA said.
