Mattress Spring Manufacturer Cited for Willful and Serious Violations

The citations come following a worker injury at a Colorado Springs plant.

OSHA has cited L&P Springs Manufacturing LLC after an employee was hospitalized for serious injuries that occurred after being pulled into a machine that compresses, rolls, and wraps finished innerspring pads.

An inspection lead to one willful violation for exposing workers to crushing hazards while working with manufacturing equipment that was not properly guarded and one serious violation for failing to train workers effectively on the use and limitations of work gloves when working with manufacturing equipment and moving material.

"Injuries from improperly guarded machines are preventable and yet L&P failed to provide these guards to protect its workers," said David Nelson, OSHA's Area Director in Englewood, Colo. "The best way to stop these injuries is to equip machinery with the proper guards according to OSHA standards."
