Chain-link fencing manufacturer, Aruvil International Inc., is facing $199,996 in fines for multiple safety violations at its Pennsauken, NJ, facility, said officials at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Investigators identified violations, including inadequate lighting; lack of machine guards; failing to keep the workroom clean and dry; failing to inspect and ensure proper use of fall protection; and failing to provide effective training on hazardous chemicals in a June inspection.
A prior OSHA investigation in August 2015 found 15 similar violations and the company faced an initial fine of $75,134. It was later reduced to $55,554.
“Aruvil International has failed to correct similar violations cited two years ago,” said OSHA Marlton Area Office Director Paula Dixon-Roderick. “To protect its workers, the employer should abate these repeatedly identified hazards.”
