OSHA finds dozens of violations at Watertown metal fabrication company

An OSHA investigation has been completed into a Watertown metal fabrication company.  An employee of PM Engineered Solutions Inc. was electrocuted on July 14th while repairing a portable water heater.  OHSA found that the company lacked safeguards to protect employees against electrocution, as well as mechanical, chemical, fall and other electrical hazards.  Area Director Dale Varney says this employee lost his life due to the employer's failure to implement required energy control procedures. OSHA cited the company for 40 serious and 8 other-than-serious violations of workplace safety and health standards found during an inspection of the facility. PM Engineered Solutions faces a total of 236-thousand-201 dollars in proposed penalties.
