BILLINGS, Mont. – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Fiberglass Structures Inc., a subsidiary of Texas-based L.F. Manufacturing Inc., with 12 serious safety violations for exposing workers to multiple hazards at the company facility in Laurel. OSHA conducted an inspection in August and has proposed $75,600 in penalties.

Fiberglass Structures received one repeat violation for not containing energized wires with covers in a flammable area, which carries a $12,600 penalty. A repeat violation exists when an employer previously has been cited for the same or a similar violation of a standard, regulation, rule or order at any other facility in federal enforcement states within the last five years. A similar violation was cited at the Waycross, Ga., facility in 2009.

“Something is seriously wrong when an employer repeatedly disregards specific safety standards required to protect workers from serious injuries or death,” said Jeff Funke, director of OSHA’s Billings Area Office. “Neglecting the safety of workers is simply unacceptable.”

Nearly one-third of pedestrians (29.8%) were distracted by their mobile devices while crossing the street, say researchers of a study published online in the journal Injury Prevention.
Just as drivers who text, talk on cell phones, or adjust MP3 players increase their risk of losing control of their vehicles, pedestrians distracted by their conversations or their gadgets also put themselves at higher risk of getting into an accident
