Local metals company fined $15,000 by OSHA

A local company that does metal finishing has been fined $15,000 for safety violations found by federal inspectors during a visit Aug. 26 to the company's operations in Northwood.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited Whitaker Finishing LLC, 2707 Tracy Rd., for five serious violations after finding employees were not using protective equipment when exposed to harmful substances and chemicals and that a railing on tanks containing caustic substances did not meet specifications.

The company may either pay the fine and correct the violations or contest the citations.
