Federal labor officials have accused an automotive metal forging company in Plantsville, Conn., of health and safety violations involving electrical hazards and inadequate training and safe work procedures. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) last month proposed fines of $112,068 against Rex Forge, a division of the JJ Ryan Corp. OSHA says the safety violations included the use of an extension cord instead of fixed wiring, and damaged electrical cords. The agency also cited electrical and fall hazards and a lack of adequate training and safe work procedures to protect workers on or near energized electrical equipment. Warren Simpson, OSHA’s director in Hartford, called the violations “prolific.”
