Bruce Foods Corporation faces $194,350 in penalties after a worker suffered an amputation. OSHA cited the company for 24 serious safety violations including failing to train workers in lockout/tagout procedures, inadequate machine guarding, lack of fall protection, and exposing workers to live electrical parts.
“Moving machine parts can cause severe injuries when they are not properly guarded and safety procedures are not in place,” said OSHA El Paso Area Director Diego Alvarado Jr. “This injury could have been prevented with employee training and proper machine guarding.”
