MillerCoors faces $77,000 in penalties after a worker's finger was amputated at its Fort Worth, Texas, brewery late last year.
An Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspection, conducted in the weeks following the accident, identified one willful and one serious safety violation. Inspectors found that machining tools in the brewery's maintenance shop lacked required safety guards and emergency stops.
"MillerCoors completely disregarded the safety of the workers who operate machinery to maintain the equipment in the facility," OSHA area director Jack Rector said in a statement.
MillerCoors, which employs about 700 at the Fort Worth facility, said in a statement that the issues "have already been remedied." The company has 15 days following receipt of the citations to comply, request a conference with OSHA officials or contest the findings.
"The safety of our employees always has been and remains the top priority at MillerCoors," the statement said.
