Workers Exposed to Amputation Hazards at Auto Parts Manufacturer

OSHA cited 11 serious violations for Cleveland Die & Manufacturing Company

After receiving a complaint alleging unsafe working conditions, OSHA has cited Cleveland Die & Manufacturing Company for eleven serious violations at its Ohio facility.

The auto part manufacturer was cited for: exposing workers to operating parts of machinery by failing to install safety mechanisms; lack of procedures to ensure equipment was de-energized to prevent it from operating during service and maintenance; PPE and face protection not provided; hooks and wire ropes were not inspected; employees were not trained about the hazardous chemicals; and a lack of a hearing conservation program.

"Lack of safety mechanisms on machines continues to be among the most frequently cited OSHA violations and that is unacceptable," said Howard Eberts, OSHA's area director in Cleveland. "Each year thousands of workers suffer injuries and illness that can affect their ability to earn a living. Cleveland Die & Manufacturing needs to make immediate improvements to ensure their workers are protected on the job."
