OSHA has issued 11 serious safety citations to Troy Chemical Corp. arising from a chemical spill at the company’s Newark facility. OSHA fines will amount to $62,100.
OSHA was tipped off by the New Jersey State Police, which reported a hazardous chemical release during a cleaning operation in January.
The violations include a variety of documentation problems that led to employees being unaware of proper safety measures. OSHA alleged poor documentation endangered the health of workers who may not have understood the hazards of inhaling some chemicals.
Further, the OSHA citations claim Troy Chemical failed to ensure that equipment was safely engineered and maintained and didn’t adequately inspect and test safety equipment.
