Liquid Feed Commodities Inc., located in Fremont, has been cited for 20 serious and one other-than-serious violation by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Proposed fines total $79,200.

OSHA’s inspection of Liquid Feed Commodities was initiated in March under a local emphasis program that targets grain handling establishments.

The serious violations stem from a lack of or inadequate fall protection, respiratory hazards, confined space hazards, energy source lockout/tagout hazards, a lack of eyewash facilities, a lack of powered industrial truck training, machine guarding hazards, electrical hazards and chemical hazards.

The other-than-serious violation is related to deficient powered industrial truck inspections.
