A NY architectural hardware manufacturer may have been hoping that OSHA inspectors would not return for a follow-up visit when they decided to not abate hazards cited at their facility. S.A. Baxter LLC now faces $117,920 in additional fines, for failing to correct safety conditions found during an initial inspection at the company’s Chester, NY manufacturing facility.
In a memo sent Monday to OSHA’s regional administrators, Director of Enforcement Programs Thomas Galassi said the agency is making a “concerted effort” to better protect temporary workers from workplace hazards using enforcement, outreach and training.
The Protecting America's Workers Act currently pending in Congress would strengthen and modernize the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 by giving OSHA additional tools to ensure that employers promptly correct hazardous working conditions, protect workers from retaliation when they blow the whistle on unsafe working conditions, and hold employers accountable for violations that cause death or serious injury to workers.
