Anarea business is facing over half a million dollars of penalties for safety violations. The Courier reports that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has proposed fining NOX US in Fostoria over $514,000. The company had two separate reports of employee injuries in June, prompting a series of inspections. The inspections led to the discovery of eight machine safety violations.

According to the Ohio Department of Labor, one employee required surgery after his hand was crushed in a tile machine. Two weeks later, another employee suffered partial amputation of two fingers while working on a recycle material system.
