OSHA cites Wis. sandblaster for health violations

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — A federal workplace-safety organization has cited a Waukesha sandblasting company for 42 safety and health violations, including four repeat health violations.

The citations against Neman Painting & Sandblasting LLC were announced Wednesday by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The citations come with proposed fines of just more than $50,000.

According to OSHA, the alleged repeat health violations include failing to perform medical evaluations for employees who use respirators, and failing to properly label containers that hold hazardous chemicals.

According to the agency, some of the alleged safety violations involved machines without proper guards and failing to maintain clean conditions.

A message left with the company Wednesday was not immediately returned.

Neman has 15 business days to comply with the fines, contest the citations or request a conference with OSHA.
