The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited an Athens, Georgia manufacturing plant for 32 alleged safety violations and proposed $137,000 in fines. OSHA, in citing Overhead Door Corp.’s Athens plant, says that in recent inspections it found machines operating without proper guards and a lack of switches that keep machinery from being turned on by accident. OSHA said employees at the plant were exposed to various hazards. It also found problems with the company’s hazard alert system and the way the company stored flammable materials. Overhead Door is a manufacturer of garage doors. The company is based in Dallas, Texas.
