Investigation Determines Global Filtration Manufacturer Failed to Protect Workers from Safety Hazards

21 serious violations were given to PECOFacet

After an employee suffered a finger amputation in April of 2016, and OSHA investigation was also a witness to second incident where an employee was seriously hurt three days after investigators arrived.

The initial investigation started after a part of a metal plate being fabricated fell on the worker’s finger while the employee was in training. The second injury occurred after a 1,300-pound metal product fell on an employee’s feet causing serious injuries.

In the end, the OSHA investigation found workers operating machinery without point of operation and safety guards and emergency stop switches.

“No worker should suffer amputation or be struck-by product at a large manufacturer such as PECOFacet. The number of violations at this facility is astounding,” said Jack Rector, OSHA’s Fort Worth Area Director. “This employer is responsible for the protection and safety of its workers from these types of life-altering injuries.”
