OSHA Fines Hampton Textile Firm For Safety Violations
The Hampton textile firm Foss Manufacturing Company is facing $115,000 in fines, according to the state’s Department of Labor.
That’s after a federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigation discovered 21 safety hazards, following an employee complaint.
Investigators found a substantive probability of injury or death from electrocution, burns, and amputation injuries, as well as confinement in oxygen-deficient spaces.
Foss Manufacturing Company creates recycled non-woven fabrics used in cars, shoes, and medical devices. The company has 15 business days to comply or contest OSHA’s findings.
