U.S. Dept. of Labor Cites Miami Commercial Bakery for Exposing Employees to Electrical & Fall Hazards

July 7, 2018

MIAMI, FL – The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Bakery Management Corp., doing business as Bakery Corp., for exposing employees to caught-in, fall, and electrical hazards. The Miami-based commercial bakery faces proposed penalties of $67,261.

 

OSHA has cited the company for allowing employees to use improperly grounded portable fans, for failing to train employees to operate a powered industrial truck, for not taking defective ladders out of service, and for failing to provide eyewash equipment for employees working with corrosive chemicals.

 

"Employers must monitor work areas for the presence of hazards, and put effective controls in place to protect employees," said OSHA Fort Lauderdale Area Office Director Condell Eastmond. "This employer's disregard for safety and health standards is putting employees at risk for serious injuries."

 

Bakery Corp. has 15 business days from receipt of the citations and proposed penalties to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA's area director, or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

 

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing safe and healthful workplaces for their employees. OSHA's role is to ensure these conditions for America's working men and women by setting and enforcing standards, and providing training, education, and assistance.
