OSHA Fines Cary Auto Parts Maker

10/11/18 – 9:00 A.M.

OSHA is fining a Carey auto parts maker more than $100,000 for alleged safety violations. The agency says Continental Structural Plastics failed to train employees on lockout procedures to disable a press before changing dies. OSHA says that amounts to an amputation hazard.

The agency also says Continental did not inspect the legs of a shelving unit in a die storage area. An investigation allegedly found damaged legs for the shelving, exposing employees to hazards from the equipment kept on the shelves.
