Violation Tracker Individual Record
On Oct. 10, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Madison Area Office initiated an inspection at the Wisconsin Grede Subsidiaries. OSHA found that workers at the foundry were being exposed to respirable crystalline silica dust and the company failed to train them on hazards and ensure respirators were fitted properly to minimize exposure. Under the terms of the agreement, the company will abate all health hazards identified by OSHA, which include three repeated and one serious violations for failing to properly fit and train workers for respirator use and failing to train workers about hazardous chemicals found in the workplace. Grede will also pay $98,000 in OSHA penalties by May 30, 2015.
