Is there more which can be done to protect workers? Do companies which violate out safety laws endanger the lives of its workers? Should workers compensation immunity laws be changed?
Domestic Casting has once again been cited by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for safety and health violations. It appears that at least four of the violations were repeat offenses. OSHA found an additional 19 serious health and safety violations during a January investigation at the iron foundry.
The investigation was prompted by a complaint and was conducted as part of the agency’s Regional Emphasis Program for Noise Hazards and National Emphasis Program on Crystalline Silica. OSHA said the repeat violations were due to the company’s failure to properly guard live electrical parts, chains, sprockets, pulleys and belts and for failing to include a standard railing on a platform.
