The U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL's) Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA's) Wichita Area Office announced that it has cited the food processing facility of Reser's Fine Foods, Topeka, Kansas, for 13 serious safety and health violations. OSHA opened an investigation at the company after receiving a complaint about an ammonia refrigerant leak.
Ammonia is typically used in the refrigeration process in food production facilities. Inspectors found that about eight pounds of ammonia were released March 3, 2015, from a compressor seal leak at the facility. Emergency evacuation procedures were initiated. One employee was taken to a local medical facility for observation but was able to return to work later that day.
Privately held manufacturing firms must attain and sustain environmental, health, and safety compliance. Manufacturers rely heavily on employees to make the business productive and profitable. Lost workdays due to sickness or injury quickly diminish profits; employees want to know manufacturers care about their health and safety. U.S. Compliance Corporation helps manufacturers avoid non-compliance lawsuits and fines by partnering and creating a customized program, practical to implement, easy to follow, and preventing workers' comp claims or costly citations.
