Iowa OSHA issued one repeat serious citation and $64,670 in penalties to O’Neal Manufacturing Services after a worker, who was operating an unguarded press brake, suffered an amputation. Inspectors found that the company failed to adequately guard press brakes to protect workers from contact with the machine’s points of operation. The company was cited for the same violation in 2018.
