Burrows Paper In Little Falls Fined By OSHA

 

Luke Tubia, WIBX

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited a Little Falls paper manufacturer for repeat and serious safety violations at two of the company’s work sites.

Burrows Paper Corp is facing over $298,000 in fines.

OSHA says they conducted inspections of Burrow’s facilities on West Main Steet and East Mill Street beacuse the company’s injury and illness rates exceeded national incident rates for 2009 and 2010.

They say violations included stairways that lacked railings and papermaking machines with insufficient guarding.

OSHA had previously cited Burows in 2010 and 2011 for similar hazards at locations in Little Falls and Lyons Falls.

Burrows has 15 days to to comply, meet with informally with OSHA’s area director or contest the findings.

In a statement, Burrows Paper Corporation says the safety violations identified by OSHA are being taken very seriously and most of the hazards were corrected immediately.

Company officials say the remaining are in the correction process.

They say since the inspection, Burrows representatives have continued to work closely with OSHA and have developed a policy for resolving any remaining hazards and a process going forward to ensure compliance.
