Cited for workplace safety and health hazards
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Lieze Associates, doing business as Eagle Recycling of New Jersey, for workplace safety and health hazards found at the company's North Bergen facility. Proposed penalties total $71,600.
OSHA initiated the inspection as a follow-up to a May 2009 inspection and cited the company with one willful, four repeat and three serious violations, as well as two failure-to-abate notices.
"OSHA will not tolerate employers that fail to abate hazards and leave workers at risk," said Kris Hoffman, director of OSHA's area office in Parsippany, which conducted the inspection. "It is vital that the company fully abates all of these hazards immediately to protect the safety and health of its employees."
