Federal labor officials have reached a settlement with a New Jersey-based subsidiary of the world’s largest beer maker to settle claims of safety violations at a distribution warehouse. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reached the agreement with Anheuser-Busch Sales of New Jersey. OSHA says the company has corrected the violations at the Jersey City site and has paid a $150,000 fine.
The company was cited by OSHA in December 2014 for what it called numerous safety violations at the warehouse. The alleged hazards included untrained forklift operators, obstructed exit routes and inadequate chemical hazard communication training. The company contested the citations late last year. That led to the settlement in which the company will implement and maintain enhanced safety measures for workers at its distributorships in Jersey City and in the Bronx, New York.
