Virginia Cites Nestle Following Serious Conveyor Injury

OSHA

The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health Program issued seven citations and $187,060 in penalties to Nestle USA after a worker’s arm became caught in a conveyor. Inspectors determined that the company failed to inspect energy control procedures annually, train workers on the control of hazardous energy, and provide adequate machine guarding. Nestle USA was also cited for these violations in 2016.
