22 Safety Violations Discovered at Texas Feed Manufacturer

The company manufactures feed and sells used agricultural machinery.

As part of the Regional Emphasis Program for Grain Handling Facilities, OSHA has cited CPE Feeds in Brownfield, Texas, for failing to provide a safe working environment for its employees, to the tune of 22 violations.

The violations include: lack of machine guarding, electrical hazards, fall hazards, lack of PPE, and more. Proposed penalties total $83,059.

"As an employer, CPE Feeds must protect its employees from amputation, electrocution and grain-handling hazards. It must also train its workers in how to work safely," said Elizabeth Linda Routh, OSHA's area director in Lubbock. "Our emphasis program will continue to target the industry and CPE Feeds until safety becomes part of a critical part of this company's culture."
