Indiana Pilkington plant fined in safety case

SHELBYVILLE, Ind. -- An Indiana auto-glass factory owned by Toledo-based Pilkington North America Inc. has been fined $150,000 after inspectors found company managers had failed to correct several workplace safety lapses discovered at the plant following a worker's 2010 death.

Pilkington was fined last month by the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration after the inspection this spring at the Shelbyville plant about 25 miles southeast of Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Business Journal reported that a July 27 safety order alleges six "repeat" violations by Pilkington, a subsidiary of Japanese conglomerate NSG Group.

The Shelbyville plant has about 350 employees.
