NEWS BRIEF: Feds bust recycler anew for “inexcusable” safety violations
TAV Holdings cited again
A local recycling company has once again exposed workers to dangerous chemicals without warning them of the risks, according to federal workplace inspectors. For the third time since 2019, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited TAV Holdings in southwest Atlanta for failing to provide employees with sufficient protection from chemical substances and other hazards.
OSHA identified three repeat and 28 “serious safety and health violations” in its most recent investigation, and levied penalties against the plant of $311,934.00. “TAV Holdings Inc.’s repeated disregard for workers’ safety is inexcusable, especially after our previous investigations identified the serious risks involved,” OSHA official Jeffery Stawowy stated. “They have a legal obligation to provide their employees with a safe and healthful workplace.” Details: dol.gov
