September 26, 2014 – General Glass International has been cited by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for 10 serious safety violations, including five electrical safety hazards found at its fabrication and design centre at 101 Venture Way in Secaucus, N.J. Initiated after a complaint, the March 2014 inspection proposes $45,540 US in penalties.
“Unguarded machinery and electrical hazards are among the leading causes of worker injury and death,” said Kris Hoffman, director of OSHA’s Parsippany Area office. “General Glass must correct these violations immediately. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure a safe and healthful workplace.”
According to OSHA, electrical and machine hazards were among its 10 most cited violations in 2013.
