A PA Die Manufacturer Cited for Workplace Hazards|PA Industrial Machinery Accident Lawyer

Posted on Aug 28, 2012

On August 23, 2012, Danco Precision, Inc., a die manufacturer in Phoenixville, PA, was cited by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with fourteen safety violations and faces $55,500 in proposed penalties.

Thirteen of the fourteen violations were serious violations, which included some of the following:

  • failing to control potentially hazardous energy,
  • failing to have and implement a hazard communication plan that includes employee training,
  • failing to provide barriers to protect employees from falls,
  • failing to address deficiencies with mechanical power presses which lack proper guarding.

These serious violations have a substantial probability of causing serious physical harm such as amputations, electrocutions, or even death.

Workers who work with industrial machinery or equipment are often exposed to hazardous conditions.  If injured by the machinery or equipment, workers may be entitled to recover damages.  An industrial machinery accident lawsuit can be complicated, and it is best to speak to an experienced Pennsylvania industrial machinery accident lawyer to explore your legal rights.
