OSHA issued over $155K in fines to a Houston factory after finding repeat violations. The agency conducted a follow-up inspection of Machinery Maintenance Rebuilders and found the company did not address violations from February 2016. The company was still exposing workers at the machinery repair shop to struck-by and amputation hazards. Inspectors also found workers operating dangerous machinery that was without proper safety guards, was not secured properly and lacked required energy-control devices used to disable potentially hazardous machinery. Two citations were issued one serious, and one failure to abate violation.
