GROTON, Conn. (WTNH) — OSHA is set to fine a Groton steel foundry company $104,000 for alleged dangerous working conditions.
OSHA says PCC Structurals-Groton failed to provide protection for its employees leaving them exposed to electrical, chemical, mechanical and fire hazards.
“Our inspections identified a disturbing cross-section of hazards that could result in eye, face or body injuries, burns, or hearing loss for employees at the Groton location, as well as potential fires or explosions. It’s imperative for the health and well-being of its employees that PCC Structurals takes comprehensive, effective and ongoing corrective action to eliminate these hazards,” said Warren Simpson, OSHA’s area director in Hartford.
PCC Structurals has 15 business days to comply or contest the findings.
