ILION, N.Y. -- Remington Arms is facing $210,000 in penalties after an Ilion employee had a fingertip cut off while working on a machine.
A total of 27 total citations were issued from the United States Department of Labor.
OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, says it found numerous safety violations including lack of machine guarding and exposures to electrical and chemical hazards.
“The violations identified exposed employees to serious and potentially life-threatening injuries,” said OSHA Syracuse Area Director Jeffrey Prebish in a statement. “Employers can minimize workplace dangers by conducting required job hazard analyses.”
The company was also cited for health violations including failing to conduct atmospheric testing in confined spaces, and failing to monitor lead exposure levels.
Remington has 15 business days to comply with the citations and penalties. When WKTV reached out to the company, security answered the phone, and gave us what turned out to be an invalid email address.
