Cheese-maker facing $126,000 OSHA fine

by

GILMAN, Wis (WSAU) The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration is proposing a $126,000 fine for a Central Wisconsin cheese-maker. Gilman Cheese has 15-days to appeal or pay after a worker was injured on-the-job last December.

The worker had several fingers severed while using a cheese-packing machine.

OSHA citied the company for 10 safety violations, and two were classified as "willful" -- meaning safety rules specifically weren't followed or were ignored. A machine-guard wasn't being used, and the company wasn't following proper 'lock-out, tag-out procedures'.

There was a similar injury at the same plant in January, 2012.

The company hasn't commented on the OSHA findings.
