Marglen fined by OSHA after Rome Plant Accident

Source: Atlanta Business Chronicle

Marglen Industries Inc., a PET fiber recycling company, has been fined $69,300 for violations found after one of its workers lost four fingers while working on a dust collector’s airlock system in Rome, Georgia.

Per OSHA, charges against Marglen include allegedly neglecting to train their workers in the company’s required lockout/tagout program and allowing employees to service and maintain the airlock system without developing, documenting and utitilizing lockout/tagout procedures for de-energizing the system.

Lockout/tagout procedures help to ensure that workers are able to identify hazardous sources of energy, the type and magnitude of the energy available in the facility and the procedures needed to isolate energy.
