CANTON (AP) — Federal officials have cited a Canton manufacturing plant for 51 alleged safety and health violations.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration reports that Adams Thermal Systems Inc. was inspected in February after a complaint alleged problems at the plant that makes coolant systems.
OSHA reports that it found 44 serious safety violations that include failing to mark emergency exits, provide fall protection on open-sided platforms, ensure that devices prevent unintended start-up of equipment and remove defective rigging equipment. The other seven violations were less serious.
OSHA says Adams Thermal Systems has been inspected five other times since 2004. That includes a death investigation opened in November last year where citations were issued. Adams Thermal has contested that case.
A spokesman for Adams Thermal declined to comment on the latest citations.
