Manufacturing Company Cited for Amputation Hazards

Lynar Corp. faces $54,000 in fines.

OSHA has cited Lynar Corp. and issued nine serious, one willful, and two other-than-serious violations to the company, along with $54,000 in fines, after the Allentown, Pa., manufacturer failed to develop procedures or provide training necessary to prevent the release of hazardous energy when employees performed maintenance on machinery, according to the agency.

OSHA said the company also failed to: provide powered industrial truck maintenance and operator training, maintain an emergency shower and eyewash station, equip employees with personal protective equipment, ensure that machine safety guards were in place, and develop and implement a Hazard Communication program.

"Lynar Corporation has failed to make safety and health a priority at its facility, leaving employees vulnerable to hazards that could cause serious injury or possible death," said Jean Kulp, director of OSHA's Allentown Area Office. "Employers have a responsibility to provide a safe and healthy work environment for employees. OSHA will not tolerate anything less than that."
