Commerce City business cited by OSHA

It was reported, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) cited Ifco Systems Pallet Recycling a Commerce City business with one repeat and five serious citations for improper machine guarding following an inspection. The penalties incurred come close to $68.000.

"Machine guard is at the heart of preventing amputation injuries," said Herb Gibson, OSHA's area director in Denver. "Many of these hazards could have been corrected if the employer had an effective safety and health management system, which would identify hazards in the workplace and reduce the likelihood of injuries and illness."

Ifco Systems Pallet Recycling have not yet commented on the situation.
