Alfa Laval Faces $477,900 in Fines for Safety Violations

OSHA found 50 violations at the Broken Arrow, Okla., facility.

An OSHA investigation has led to Alfa Laval Inc. facing $477,900 in proposed penalties after the agency's inspectors discovered dozens of serious workplace safety violations, five of which were identified in previous inspections.

According to an OSHA news release, investigators found five repeat and 45 serious violations on a range of health and safety issues at the company's Broken Arrow, Okla., facility. Some of the violations included inadequate protection of workers from machinery and a lack of respiratory equipment and training for hazardous chemicals.

Alfa Laval also had no procedure to prevent machines from starting during maintenance or service and failed to maintain written fire protection and emergency management plans, OSHA reported.

"Alfa Laval has no excuse for repeatedly exposing workers to dangerous conditions," said David Bates, OSHA's area director in Oklahoma City. "A continued failure by the company to make needed changes to its safety program may well result in severe injuries or worse."
