DEPARTMENT OF LABOR: U.S Department of Labor Cites Texas Rubber Company for Safety Violations

By Press release submission | May 28, 2019


U.S. Department of Labor issued the following announcement on May 24.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Custom Rubber Products LLC – based in Houston, Texas – for failing to properly guard machinery and exposing employees to severe injury and amputation hazards. The company faces $530,392 in fines, the maximum penalty allowable by law.

OSHA cited Custom Rubber Products LLC for four egregious willful violations for machine guarding and caught-in hazards, and the company remains in the Severe Violator Enforcement Program. OSHA cited the company for similar hazards in 2014 after another employee was severely injured.

"Employers are required to assess potential hazards, and make necessary corrections to ensure a safe workplace," said OSHA's Acting Regional Administrator in Dallas Eric S. Harbin. "The inspection results demonstrate workplace deficiencies existed putting workers at serious risk of injury."
