In a statement that month, Ken Montgomery, OSHA’s area director in Cincinnati, said, “Fuyao Glass America needs to protect its workers. Period. Since Fuyao began operations in October 2015, we have received multiple complaints and conducted eight inspections at the facility. We found safety and health violations in six of them.”
The company said it has worked with the agency to ensure the Moraine plant is up to code. The company said it has invested more than $7 million in safety measures within the last several months.
An agreement has been reached, but it has not been formally signed yet, according to OSHA. When the agency issues a citation to an employer, the two parties could resolve the matter and eliminate the hazard, according to an OSHA document.
