Sheet Metal Manufacturer Cited After Court Ordered Inspection

OSHA found more than a dozen repeated and serious violations

A safety inspection into an El Dorado Springs, Missouri, sheet metal manufacturer discovered more than a dozen repeated and serious violations leading to fines of $138,430 total.

The inspection occurred after OSHA was granted a warrant to inspect Hammond Sheet Metal, which operates as Barrington Manufacturing Corporation. A review of injury logs found that numerous workers suffered lacerations to the hands and wrists, which corroborated the initial complaint.

"Employers have a legal responsibility to provide safe working conditions and allow OSHA to investigate complaints when safety is overlooked," said Karena Lorek, OSHA's acting area director in Kansas City. "Barrington Manufacturing must make immediate changes to its safety and health programs to ensure workers are protected from injuries and illnesses in its facility."

Barrington was also cited for failure to: evaluate the space for hazards, ensure workers used proper PPE, train workers on hazardous chemicals in the facility, adequate machine guarding, and more.
