By Staff Reports

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited HP Pelzer Automotive Systems Inc., located in Thomson, for 22 health and safety violations, the U.S. Department of Labor announced Monday. Proposed penalties are $207,100.
According to a news release, OSHA began its inspection of Pelzer’s facility in July 2013 after receiving complaints alleging hazards within the workplace. It also cited Sizemore, Pelzer’s temporary employment placement service.
"HP Pelzer continues to put workers at risk of serious injury or death by failing to correct unguarded equipment and other serious hazards," said Bill Fulcher, director of OSHA's Atlanta-East Area Office. "Additionally, Sizemore must work proactively with its client to ensure temporary workers receive appropriate safety and health training.”
