According to the business section of the Hartford Courant, Holo-Krome, Inc’s tool manufacturing plant in West Hartford “was cited for 26 alleged ‘willful, repeat and serious violations of standards’ after an inspection that began in August.” Proposed penalties total $247,000.
The Courant noted that the in the most serious violation OSHA claims that Holo-Krome “bypassed or removed safety devices that protected workers from moving machine parts, resulting in a hand injury to a worker.” The Courant also says this is the third time in six years the company’s been cited.
Ouch! Holo-Krome is currently a part of Danaher Corp., which I’d imagine has no desire for this kind of publicity and will likely have something to say about all this.
