Steel Provider Repeatedly Exposes Workers to Fall and Chemical Hazards: OSHA

OSHA has cited Republic Steel for three repeat and eight serious violations.

OSHA announced that its inspection has determined that workers are still exposed to fall and chemical hazards at Republic Steel's Lorain, Ohio, steel mill. The company has received three repeat and eight serious safety citations as a result.

"Republic Steel has made a significant investment in workplace safety and health programs. The company must remain vigilant and protect workers from hazards while it updates equipment, trains workers, and instills a culture of safety in its mills," said Kimberly Nelson, OSHA's area director in Toledo. "Steel manufacturing is a high-hazard industry. OSHA will continue to monitor worker safety and health at this and other facilities."

The serious violations were for exposing workers to molten metal hazards, failing to provide an emergency eyewash station, not requiring workers exposed to hydrochloric acid splash hazards to use protective equipment, and violating respiratory protection standards, according to the agency.
