Ten Serious Safety Violations Found at General Glass International

Electrical and machine hazards were among those found at the Secaucus, N.J., plant, according to OSHA.

OSHA announced it has cited General Glass International for 10 serious safety violations, including electrical and machine hazards found at the company's fabrication and design center at 101 Venture Way in Secaucus, N.J. There are proposed fines of $45,540.

"Unguarded machinery and electrical hazards are among the leading causes of worker injury and death," said Kris Hoffman, director of OSHA's Parsippany Area Office. "General Glass must correct these violations immediately. It is the employer's responsibility to ensure a safe and healthful workplace."

Five of the 10 cited violations were related to electrical safety hazards. The other five violations were cited for not marking exits clearly, lack of machine guarding, a damaged crane sling, and the use of compressed air at a pressure level that was too high for cleaning a work area.
