California Fines Manufacturer for Exposing Workers to Amputation Hazards


California OSHA issued six citations and $48,095 in penalties to the manufacturer, Tobin Steel Company, Inc., after a worker sustained serious injuries while operating an unguarded press brake machine. Inspectors concluded that the company failed to: conduct and document required inspections; test and maintain power-operated presses; train workers on amputation hazards; and provide adequate machine guarding.
