Summary Of Major OSHA Citations - Week Ending June 2nd

A summary of major OSHA citations announced during the week ending June 2nd.

The following is based on press releases from OSHA.

There were no OSHA citations over $100,000 announced last week.

OSHA announced only one citation last week.

MB Consultants Ltd., doing business as Murray's Chickens, was cited for eight alleged violations of workplace safety and health standards at the company's South Fallsburg chicken processing facility. Proposed fines total $67,600.

OSHA found deficiencies in the facility's hazardous energy control, or "lockout/tagout" program, which is designed to prevent machinery from unintentionally starting up during maintenance. These include a lack of energy control procedures and failing to train workers on the program's purpose and functions. Additionally, the company failed to adequately guard processing machinery against contact with workers and to provide workers with information and training on specific hazards involving disinfectants and other chemicals used in work areas. These conditions resulted in citations for six serious violations.
