OSHA Busts Guam Golf Club for 17 Safety Violations

Serious safety violations include failing to provide training for employees working with hazardous materials, provide appropriate personal protective equipment for eyes and face, and exposing workers to live electrical parts.

OSHA has cited Guam International Country Club for 17 alleged workplace safety violations found during an inspection at the club's maintenance shop in Dededo, Guam. Proposed fines total $32,900.

"Employees must be protected against safety hazards in the workplace—not just because it is the right thing to do but because it is the law," said Ken Nishiyama Atha, OSHA's regional administrator in San Francisco. "Workplace safety is critical. OSHA will remain focused on being proactive, especially when workers' safety and health are at stake."

Fifteen serious safety violations include failing to provide training for employees working with hazardous materials, provide appropriate personal protective equipment for eyes and face, provide required forklift training and ensure that the forklift had a functioning seatbelt, and multiple electrical hazards, including exposing workers to live electrical parts.

Two other-than-serious safety violations were cited for failing to prepare and maintain records of work-related injuries and illnesses, including OSHA's Form 300 for work-related injuries and illnesses as well as the agency's Form 301, or its equivalent, for reporting incidents of injuries and illnesses.
