The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has proposed $146,000 in safety and health penalties against an Amite, La., steel mill. OSHA said Monday it cited Bradken Inc. with 27 serious and seven other-than-serious violations at the company’s steel alloy casting mill. OSHA said it found that workers melting and pouring casts were exposed to mechanical, welding, electrical and confined space hazards, and a lack of machine guards. Bradken is based in Waratah, Australia. According to OSHA, Bradken has about 270 employees at its Amite plant. The company had 15 days to comply, request a meeting with OSHA or contest the citations.
