OSHA Cites Plan B Promotions for Several Hazards

The New Jersey merchandise printer allegedly violated several rules, including exposing workers to excessive heat.

OSHA has cited a Lakewood, New Jersey-based merchandise printer—Plan B Promotions—for several hazards, according to a press release from OSHA. The company has been cited for six serious violations and two other violations, which brought a total of $11,200 in proposed fines from the agency.

Plan B Promotions has been cited for allegedly exposing workers to excessive heat, which carries $7,000 in proposed fines. OSHA also cited the company for violations that include failure to keep exit routes free and unobstructed, failure to properly store flammable liquids and label hazardous chemicals, failure to provide appropriate eye protection for workers who wear contacts, failure to develop a written Hazard Communication program, and more.

OSHA also pointed to two "other-than-serious" violations (ones that carry no penalty), which included failure to certify that a personal protective equipment assessment was performed and failure to provide workers with Appendix D, which provides information on respirator use.
