Atlas Steel Coatings Fined by OSHA

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Atlas Steel Coatings for violations at the company’s Albany, Georgia facility last July. OSHA fined the company for failing to train workers on lead hazards, not providing personal protective equipment for workers exposed to lead, not developing a site specific lead compliance plan and not providing showers for workers exposed to lead beyond safe levels.

Atlas was also fined for not providing workers with forklift training and failure to notify workers of their blood lead test results in writing within five days. “This is to prevent workers from transferring lead contamination to their homes or families”, said Robert Vazzi, director of OSHA’s area office in Savannah.

Proposed penalties for Atlas Steel total $58,800
