The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will fine Cold Drawn, Inc., a steel manufacturer, nearly $52,000 after finding more than two dozen safety violations. This comes after an investigation brought on by a worker’s electrocution. The violations found by OSHA were at a plant operated by Cold Drawn in St. Louis. The company manufactures cold-finished steel bars at plants in St. Louis; Point Pleasant, W.V.; and Apodaca, Mexico.
It was reported by OSHA that a Cold Drawn worker was electrocuted May 15 when he reached into an energized electrical panel box to retrieve work gloves stored in the box at the company’s St. Louis manufacturing facility. Nineteen of the safety violations were considered serious.
