OSHA fined Bethlehem-based Brey-Krause Manufacturing Co. and L.M. Smoyer Brass Products more than $109,000 for violations in a shared foundry area.
Responding to a complaint, OSHA cited the companies for a willful violation because they failed to monitor their employees’ exposure to lead, a leading cause of workplace illness. The administration also cited the two companies for 33 other serious violations.
A Brey-Krause spokesman said the company feels OSHA “overreacted.”
