Envelope Printing Facility Ignored Machine Safety Procedures: OSHA

OSHA has proposed more than $88,000 in fines.

According to OSHA, three workers suffered amputation injuries within four months at a Columbiana, Ohio, envelope printing facility because their employer failed to protect them from moving machine parts. OSHA cited Envelope 1 for three willful and four serious violations. They agenc has issued $88,200 in proposed fines.

"When repeated amputation injuries occur at a business, safety is not a priority," said Howard Eberts, OSHA's area director in Cleveland. "After OSHA initiated its first inspection involving an amputation in June 2015, Envelope 1 failed to take immediate steps to protect workers. If they had, it may have prevented other injuries."
