GA: $69,300 Fine for Marglen Industries Inc

Rome, GA:  OSHA fined Marglen Industries Inc. $69,300 for safety violations after a worker had four fingers amputated while servicing a dust collector’s airlock system at the company’s Rome, Ga., facility.

One violation involves allowing employees to perform service and maintenance on the dust collector’s airlock system without developing, documenting and using a specific lockout/tagout procedure for de-energizing the system, OSHA said.

OSHA also charged Marglen with one serious violation for allegedly failing to train workers as required by the company’s lockout/tagout program to ensure that they are able to recognize hazardous energy sources, the type and magnitude of the energy available in the workplace, and the methods necessary for isolating energy.

Marglen is a PET fiber recycling company.
