By Anthony Capkun
January 6, 2015 – Texas-based C & H Die Casting Inc. has again been cited by OSHA for exposing workers to electrical hazards, among others.
During a 2013 inspection, C & H was cited for violating 30 serious safety & health OSHA standards, including using spliced electrical cords. The citations carried $112,500 in proposed fines. In September 2014, inspectors discovered workers still being exposed to electrical shock hazards. This repeated violation carried a $22,000 penalty.
Also cited were 14 serious safety violations with a $44,400 penalty, which included “numerous electrical violations” such as spliced welding cables, uncovered welding terminals, missing grounding prongs on electrical cords and unlabelled circuit breaker panels.
