Alaska Seafood Company Cited for Exposing Workers to Hazards


The Alaska Occupational Safety and Health Division issued five citations and $91,852 in penalties to Westward Seafoods, Inc., for exposing workers to machine guarding and struck-by hazards. Inspectors concluded that the company failed to inspect slings, fastenings, and attachments prior to being used for material handling; display load rating information on equipment; and protect workers from electrical shock and ladder fall hazards. The company was previously cited for these violations in 2015.
