Igloo Products Faces $113K in Fines from OSHA Including Electrical Safety Violations

KATY, TEXAS – A company in Katy is facing more than $113,000 in federal penalties for allegation of unsafe working conditions, authorities said.

The investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration began May 27 when employees at Igloo Products Corp. complained they were exposed to safety hazards while servicing machines at the company.

OSHA officials said the company didn’t provide eye protection or adequate safety shower stations for employees. They also failed to close electrical panel covers, provide clean and dry walkways and stairway, among other violations.

The company also failed to maintain power tools and adequately label electrical equipment.

The company has 15 days to comply with the requirements, contest the ruling or request a conference with OSHA officials in Houston.
