A company in Auburn, Maine, that makes automotive fabric products is facing more than $100,000 in federal fines for allegedly putting its employees in harm’s way.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) last month cited Formed Fiber Technologies Inc. for seven alleged workplace safety violations and for exposing employees to “the risk of lacerations, crushed fingers, amputation or worse if struck by or caught in unguarded or unexpectedly activated machinery.” According to OSHA, no injuries have been reported. The company said it was reviewing the OSHA citations and “places the highest priority on workplace safety.” Formed Fiber Technologies had 15 business days from receipt of the citations and proposed penalties to comply with or contest the findings.
