MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Federal labor officials have issued 10 safety citations at Tyson Foods’ plant in Jefferson.
According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the citations resulted from an inspection conducted in October.
The agency says nine of the citations resulted from violations that could lead to death or serious injury. Those violations included a lack of fall protection, shortcomings in the plant’s respiratory program and a lack of maintenance on industrial trucks.
Tyson faces up to $45,000 in penalties. The company has 15 days to respond. Company spokesman Gary Mickelson had no immediate comment.
