Eau Claire factory facing $782K in OSHA fines

Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Eau Claire manufacturing facility could be facing big fines if they do not fix violations found by OSHA.

According to a news release from the U.S. Department of Labor, Choice Products USA LLC was found to not be implementing and training employees on lockout/tagout procedures, installing machine guarding or complying with forklift regulations.

The department says OSHA cited Choice Products for exposing employees to similar machine hazards in October 2016.

Choice Products has 15 days to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA or contest the findings.

If that does not happen they could be fined $782,526.
