Mauston company cited by OSHA
OSHA had conducted a follow-up inspection of a Mauston industry and found nine safety violations. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Stroh Precision Casting for nine safety, including five repeat, violations at the company’s Mauston facility. OSHA conducted an inspection in May as a follow-up to an August 2011 inspection that had resulted in citations for failing to provide appropriate protective equipment and train workers on hazardous chemicals, among other violations. Proposed fines for the most recent inspection total $51,590. Specifically, OSHA’s area director in Madison Kim Stille says, “Stroh Precision Die Casting is compromising the health and safety of its workers by allowing previously cited deficiencies to continue without correction. Specifically, the repeat violations are failing to provide appropriate hand protection, requiring workers to wear face protection, and not properly labeling chemicals and train workers on hazardous chemicals.” Mauston’s General Manager Don Taylor said, “the company will meet with OSHA and provide documentation regarding the citations and go from there.”
