Georgia Company Faces Up to $46K in Fines

MACON, GA: The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has fined a Macon company $40,600.

California Cereal Products Inc., 375 Mead Road, was cited for nine “serious” safety and health violations for exposing workers to electrical, fall and noise hazards, an OSHA news release states.

The agency inspected the business in December 2013 after a complaint was filed.

The violations include the employer’s failure to provide workers with training to protect themselves from moving machine parts during servicing and maintenance activities and for exposing workers to fall hazards, the news release states.

The company also failed to institute a monitoring and training program for noise exposure to prevent permanent hearing loss from unsafe noise levels, according to the news release.
