Brooklyn Manufacturer Faces $105K in Fines

Acme Parts Inc faces fines for dangerous lead, noise and chemical hazards

After a report was issued to OSHA, the agency has found that employees at Acme Parts Inc., lacked adequate protections against lead exposure, hearing loss and hazardous chemicals, according to a report.

Specifically, OSHA found the company failed to: train employees about lead hazards, prevent lead from accumulating on surfaces, prohibit employees from consuming food and drink in lead contaminated areas, and conduct initial monitoring to determine lead exposure levels.

"An elevated level of lead in a worker's bloodstream is a serious health matter, and a sign that employees are not being adequately protected against exposure to this hazardous substance. Lead can damage the nervous system, kidneys, blood forming organs, and reproductive system if inhaled or ingested in dangerous quantities," said Kay Gee, OSHA's area director for Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens.
