AGE Industries Ltd. Cited for Amputation, Electric Shock Hazards

The Conway, Ark., company faces $78,500 in penalties.

OSHA has cited AGE Industries Ltd. of Conway, Ark., for 14 safety violations for exposing workers to struck-by, amputation and electric shock hazards.

"The package manufacturing industry is already known to subject employees to high risk levels," said Carlos Reynolds, OSHA's area director in Little Rock. "By refusing to install the required equipment and make simple fixes, AGE Industries exposed its workers to unnecessary amputation and electrical hazards, which is unacceptable."

A repeat violation was issued for exposing workers to amputation hazards as they worked near the manual cutting machine without required machine guards. Seven serious violations were issued for failure to provide correct machine guards for tube saws and glue machines and to contain live electrical wiring on an automatic pallet-wrapping machine.
