MINDEN, Neb. (AP) — Federal labor officials want to impose nearly $170,000 in fines on a Nebraska fiberglass company for violations of safety and health standards.
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration says Wednesday that America's Fiberglass Animals was cited for eight repeat and seven serious violations found during an inspection at its plant in Minden. OSHA says the inspection was a follow-up after the company moved operations from Hastings.
OSHA says the company was cited last year for exposing employees to serious chemical hazards and for other dangerous condition and failed to correct them.
Company spokesman Patrick Keough (KEE'-oh) told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he was on the road and hasn't seen the violations, but he anticipates he'll turned the matter over to his attorney.
