November 8, 2007

Federal regulators have cited a Pittsburgh area metal fabricating company for alleged safety and health violations and proposed fines totaling $127,200.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration began an investigation of Sabina Manufacturing in Lawrence on May 22 following a complaint, the Labor Department said in a statement.

The company was cited for allegedly lacking proper machine guards to protect employees from injury. Other violations reflected a deficient hazardous energy control system and a lack of record keeping.

The serious violations pertain to Sabina’s failure to provide proper training for employees operating power presses and other equipment, OSHA said.

The company employs 71 people.
