After an inspection, which began in August 2009, the agency cited the company with one willful safety violation for failing to implement lockout/tagout procedures on press machines.
OSHA also issued eight serious safety violations for inadequate guarding on a press brake and on floor fans. The agency also determined that employees were exposed to hazards related to fire, slips and falls and overhead hoists and cranes.
A separate health inspection revealed the company failed to offer Hepatitis B vaccination after two amputations at the facility. OSHA also claims blood from an amputation was not cleaned off of a machine before it was placed back into operation.
C&W also faces penalties for failing to complete incident reports, maintain OSHA 300 logs, prepare annual injury and illness summaries and develop and implement a hazard communication program.
