Yes Ken Ward bringing good news! Here is a great example of prevention, no one has been hurt or killed a big thumbs up to whoever filled the complaint and OSHA for their efforts.
Federal officials have cited Chapman Printing Co. in Huntington for nearly 20 alleged safety violations and fined the firm $158,400.
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an inspection in June, in response to a formal complaint.
As a result, OSHA inspectors issued citations accusing the company of six willful violations, carrying a total of $126,000 in fines. Inspectors also issued eight serious citations and five other-than-serious citations, according to an OSHA news release.
"Each of these violations leaves the company's workers vulnerable to potential injuries and illnesses," said Jeff Funke, area director of OSHA's Charleston office. "It is important that Chapman Printing eliminate these hazards to ensure a safe and healthy work environment."
