OSHA Cites Crane and Grain Service for OSH Act Violations

OSHA has cited Crane and Grain Service LLC of York, Neb., for alleged violations of the Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970.

OSHA cited the company following an investigation into a fatal accident in York where a worker was electrocuted from an improperly wired flexible cord. The inspection found three alleged serious violations of the OSH Act.

"This accident was preventable," said Charles Adkins, OSHA's regional administrator in Kansas City, Mo. "Employers need to be proactive in addressing safety issues to ensure their workplaces are safe and healthful."

The alleged serious violations stem from the employer using a flexible cord that was not properly wired, improper use of ladders that were damaged, and lack of ladder training. OSHA issues a serious citation when death or serious physical harm is likely to result from a hazard about which an employer knew or should have known.

The violations carry $9,300 in proposed penalties against the company. For more information, visit www.osha.gov.
