MERIDIAN — An Okolona furniture company faces about $66,000 in proposed fines following an investigation by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
OSHA said in a new release on Tuesday that it found 18 violations — including one repeat violation — at United Furniture Industries Inc.
The alleged violations included failing to label feeder and branch electrical circuits, failing to provide railings on stairs; locked, unmarked and inadequate exits; damaged fire extinguishers and allowing safety devices to be removed from nail guns.
The company has 15 days to contest the findings.
