Recycling Company Faces Fines for Failing to Correct Workplace Safety Hazards

ALSS Recycling Inc. faces $84K in fines

OSHA has issued ALSS Recycling one serious and three other-than-serious safety violations after a follow-up inspection, according to a report.

The serious violation was cited for not ensuring employees were trained to operate powered industrial trucks. The other-than-serious citations are tied to the employer not inspecting fire extinguishers annually and failing to ensure employees voluntarily wearing respirators were medically cleared. The company also did not develop and implement a written hazard communication program for employees who handle recycled iron products.

“ALSS Recycling did not fulfill its requirement to ensure the hazards that were cited in the previous inspection were corrected,” said Ramona Morris, OSHA’s area director in Birmingham. “We are expecting management to take immediate action to permanently correct the hazards in order to protect its employees.”
