Worker suffers severe workplace injuries while cleaning equipment

There is no valid reason for employers to disregard the safety of their workers. Yet, some company owners continue to allow dangerous conditions to threaten employees, even after receiving citations for safety violations. One safety hazard that is prevalent in different industries is exposure to moving machine parts, and a Georgia air filter manufacturer recently received repeat citations after a worker suffered severe workplace injuries.

Company cited for violations that may cause workplace injuries

Georgia workers who feel threatened by safety hazards to which they are exposed at their places of employment have the right to report their concerns to the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration. OSHA may follow such reports with investigations to determine whether the company owners violated the prescribed safety regulations. Failure to protect workers from workplace injuries is punishable by law, and, if violations are identified, they are graded and penalties are leveled accordingly.
