Workers Exposed to Machine Hazards at Metal Stamping Company

NN Metal Stampings has been cited for nine serious and two other-than-serious safety violation

According to a news release, OSHA has cited NN Metal Stampings Inc. for nine serious and two other-than-serious safety violations. The violations were handed out after an investigation found workers were exposed to operating parts of machinery, not provided PPE, and working in a space that violated safe electrical practices.

“Each year hundreds of workers are injured because employers fail to implement machine safety procedures and train workers to safely perform their jobs,” said Joe Margetiak, acting area director of OSHA’s Toledo office. “NN Metal Stampings needs to immediately review their safety and health management system and training procedures to protect workers on the job.”

Proposed penalties are $77,322.
