Aug. 1, 2022, 5:17 PM

General Aluminum Manufacturing Co. has been cited for one repeat, two willful, and 10 serious violations and proposed $480,240 in penalties for alleged machine hazards at its Wapakoneta, Ohio, facility, the Department of Labor announced Monday.

Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspectors determined the vehicle parts manufacturer allegedly didn’t provide sufficient lockout/tagout training and exposed workers to electrical and arc flashes, confined space, and powered industrial vehicle hazards, the department said.

The company has 15 business days from receipt of its citations and penalties to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA’s area director, or contest the findings.
