California Fines Foundry Over $280,000 for Confined Space Incident

California

The California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA) cited Alhambra Foundry Co. Ltd., for eight safety and health violations after an employee’s legs were amputated to free him from an auger screw conveyor. Cal/OSHA’s investigation determined that the foundry failed to de-energize and lock out the equipment before employees performed cleaning operations, did not have a permit-required confined space program, and did not provide an attendant to monitor the confined space. The company faces proposed penalties of $283,390. For more information, read the news release.
