Ohio printing company cited by OSHA for safety violations

Many residents of the state of Ohio must work to get by financially. While it is possible that any of those workers could be injured in the course of performing a task tied to their job, there are certain types of jobs that seem riskier than others. To try to keep workers throughout the nation safe, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration creates safety guidelines that employers need to follow. To determine whether they are being followed, the agency conducts inspections of workplaces. The level of compliance it finds during those inspections varies from employer to employer.

Recently, the inspection of a manufacturing plant in Ohio uncovered a total of 24 alleged violations. Of those alleged violations, 13 of them were considered to be serious. The categorization of the violations matters as the fines attached are higher when they are in that group. The printing company is facing proposed penalties totaling $91,800.

While these investigations are sometimes prompted by workplace accidents where a worker is injured, in this particular instance the inspection followed the receipt of a complaint.

Workplace safety is something that everyone needs to take seriously. When, however, a worker is hurt in the course of his or her employment, the injured individual may be able to obtain workers’ compensation benefits. The benefits could make it much easier financially for the worker as he or she recovers. Since they are not always immediately granted, it is often beneficial for the injured worker to have a workers’’ compensation lawyer on their side.
