The U.S. Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Crucible Specialty Metals, of State Fair Boulevard, Syracuse, New York, and proposed penalties of $67,500 against the firm for three alleged repeat violations of OSHA standards. The company has until February 21 to contest the citations.
According to OSHA area director Diane M. Brayden, the action results from an investigation conducted on January 12 following a complaint about unsafe conditions.
OSHA cited the firm, which manufactures specialty steel items, with three alleged repeat violations for failing to:
keep aisles and passageways clear of electrical equipment and debris;
guard stairway floor openings, catwalks, and work platforms by installing standard railings on all exposed sides;
provide appropriate covers on breaker panels, knife switches, and other electrical equipment.
A repeat violation is one for which an employer has been previously cited for the same or a substantially similar condition and the citation has become a final order of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. The firm was previously cited for these conditions in January, 1997.
The investigation was conducted by OSHA's Syracuse area office, located at 3300 Vickery Road, North Syracuse, New York, telephone (315) 451-0808.
