A feed and pet supply firm in Clyde, Ohio, has been fined $25,350 by federal officials for safety violations in January when employees were injured by a forklift driver.
Phillips Feed & Pet Supply Inc. was cited for two “serious” category violations for the mishap that occurred Jan. 23. According to a report by the Toledo office of the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the company did not provide proper training on the operation of a forklift.
The report said employees were “exposed to, struck-by, and caught-in-between hazards.” The company can contest the citation and the fine.
