As a result, the company has been cited with 33 serious violations, with a penalty of $61,250, and eight other-than-serious violations, with a penalty of $2,500. The serious violations include fall hazards, unsafe storage of flammable and combustible liquids, unguarded machinery, lack of welding screens, lack of caution signs, lack of crane and sling inspections, obstructed exits, inadequate training, lack of safety restraints for compressed air hoses, numerous electrical hazards, lack of a hearing conservation program and lack of a hazard communication program. The other-than-serious violations include blocked fire extinguishers, the absence of ‘no smoking’ signs, the company’s failure to take air samples to determine employee exposure to hexavalent chromium and the company’s failure to maintain required records. “These violations leave Amer Industrial Technologies employees vulnerable to workplace accidents that can cause injury and possible death,” said Domenick Salvatore, area director of OSHA’s Wilmington office. “The company is strongly encouraged to abate these hazards as quickly as possible.” The Wilmington Delaware company designs, engineers, manufactures and tests nuclear and non-nuclear pressure vessels, and employs 30 workers.
