Sewon America, a car parts manufacturing company, has apparently remedied several issues and increased training after receiving the most federal safety violations ever in Georgia. It was reported that Sewon America, which manufactures components for Kia, has been inspected nine times and received 18 citations since 2009 from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Among other things, federal officials have accused the company of failing to provide workers adequate hand and eye protection, and exposed employees to crush hazards. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that ambulances have been sent to the facility 23 times for trauma calls since the plant opened four years ago. The plant’s general manager Ken Horton says employees had to overcome a learning curve. According to the company most of the citations were issued in 2009 and 2010.
