Birmingham, Alabama-based Sloss Industries incurred $182,500 in proposed penalties for exposing workers to safety hazards at its fiber divisions manufacturing plant. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration proposed the penalty. OSHA inspectors cited the company for four safety violations. The investigation was started after Sloss Industries failed to fix previous violations that would prevent unintended machine startup. Inspectors also cited the company for exposing employees to electrical hazards. Sloss operates the world’s largest slag wool plant.
