Recently, OSHA recommended a fine for an Augusta-based paper mill, International Paper, after an accident that killed a worker earlier this year. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reported that OSHA handed down 37 citations and proposed more than $120,000 in fines against this Employer.
The OSHA violation came after a worker was hit and killed by a timber loading crane in February. It was reported that this injured worker was an employee for approximately 43 years. OSHA says the company was running the crane without any kind of warning device.
