Alabama Company Faces OSHA-Proposed $79,300 in Safety Violation Penalties

Following the death of a Robins Air Force Base worker in March, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has deemed ASM-Sanders Inc, of Madison, Alabama, responsible for safety violations.  OSHA has proposed a total of $79,300 in penalties to be paid by the company.

In March, a Robins Air Force Base employee died in a chilled water line testing accident, after suffering severe head injuries.  OSHA discovered that ASM-Sanders used compressed air, rather than the manufacturer-recommended hydrostatic testing, to conduct tests for leaks in chemical welds of chloride pipes.  This violation, along with other alleged violations in the workplace led OSHA to propose the approximately $80,000 penalty.

ASM-Sanders has 15 business days from the date of the receipt of the citations to comply or argue the penalities.
