Thorns for the revelation by the Dept. of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration of a local business being cited multiple times for safety and health violations. Proposed penalties for Metal & Wire Products in the Salem Industrial Park total nearly $73,0000. Potential hazards listed violations which could have led to press-operation injuries as serious as amputations. Any employee should expect to work in the safest of environments. We have not learned of such kinds of injuries in this particular instance. But when OSHA slaps 21 serious violations on a business, this is egregious and should get promptly resolved for the sake of the work force.
