Fras-le Cited for 17 Safety and Health Violations

An OSHA inspection was initiated as part of the agency's Regional Emphasis Program for safety hazards in the auto parts industry.

Fras-le North America Inc. has been cited by OSHA for 17 safety violations, according to an agency news release. The violations were assessed following an inspection which was initiated as part of the agency's Regional Emphasis Program for safety hazards in the auto parts industry. There are proposed penalties of $67,500.

Two repeat citations were cited for exposing workers to slip, trip, and fall hazards and for blocking emergency exits. The employer was also cited for eight serious violations for allegedly failing to protect workers from moving machine parts during servicing or maintenance; not training employees on the skills and knowledge required when conducting machine maintenance and servicing; and exposing workers to fall hazards of up to 40 feet by not ensuring employees were using fall protection equipment.

"Our inspection found that employees were exposed to numerous safety and health deficiencies, such as falls, amputations, and electrocution hazards, all of which can result in serious injury or death," said Joseph Roesler, OSHA's area director in Mobile. "Employers must take responsibility to protect workers and should be proactive in evaluating and correcting workplace hazards before an OSHA inspection."
