Occupational Safety and Health Administration Seeks Fines for Ashley Furniture Industries, Inc
Feb 3 15
The U.S. Labor Department seeks Ashley Furniture Industries Inc. seeking hefty fines and accusing the Wisconsin firm of emphasizing profit over worker safety. The department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration said it is seeking to fine Ashley nearly $1.8 million for a raft of safety violations. Over 3 1/2 years, workers at the furniture-maker's sprawling plant in the western Wisconsin community of Arcadia experienced more than 1,000 work-related injuries. About 4,500 people work at the factory. The 1,000 injuries are what OSHA considers recordable, meaning they required treatment by someone other than the injured person, the agency's area director for northwestern Wisconsin. Its investigators identified 38 safety violations at Ashley, including 12 that were willful violations committed with intentional, knowing or voluntary disregard for the law's requirement, or with plain indifference to employee safety and health. The vast majority of its injuries and illnesses at Arcadia are minor, with less than a fourth of them requiring time away from work. Overall, the rate of injuries and illnesses has dropped 14% over the in five years. Ashley said, it strongly disagrees with each and every one of the agency's assertions and believes the proposed penalties are grossly inappropriate and overzealous. OSHA launched an investigation at Ashley after a worker lost three fingers in July while operating a wood working machine without required safety mechanisms in place. The agency said more than 100 other injuries at Ashley were caused by similar machinery. Another 12 were repeat violations. OSHA cited inadequate protection on 37 different machines, including a dozen saws. Some of the citations allege lack of safety guards. Most involve lockout issues, with OSHA saying Ashley failed to ensure that machines wouldn't unintentionally start while workers changed blades, bits and other tooling. Ashley said it trains employees to follow full lockout procedures and completely disable machines when certain activities are performed. But the company said it has had an ongoing disagreement with OSHA over applying full lockout rules during minor servicing such as changing drill bits.
