Fuyao America Glass Fined $227K after Complaint, Inspections

OSHA found multiple safety issues in its visits to the plant.

OSHA has issued Fuyao America Glass multiple safety violations after workers began making complaints of unsafe working conditions in the company's Moraine, Ohio, facility not long after opening. Fuyao is a glass supplier for brands such as Audi, Cadillac, and Land Rover.

An inspection found multiple machine safety violations, which expose workers to amputation injuries, as well as a lack of PPE, electrical hazards and failing to train workers about hazardous chemicals.

In total, the company has been cited for 23 serious safety violations and one other-than-serious violation.

"Fuyao Glass America needs to protect its workers. Period," said Ken Montgomery, OSHA's area director in Cincinnati. "Since Fuyao began operations in October 2015, we have received multiple complaints and conducted eight inspections at the facility. We found safety and health violations in six of them. OSHA will remain vigilant until this rapidly expanding company protects its workers from serious safety hazards by making needed improvements to equipment, procedures and training. Providing jobs in a community should not come at the expense of workers' safety and health."
