OSHA has praised an Atlanta-based food manufacturer for its decision to make a pre-citation settlement agreement with the agency.

During a tour of one of the manufacturer’s facilities, OSHA inspectors found equipment, fall, and other hazards that resulted in 10 total citations. However, the company accepted responsibility for the violations and contacted OSHA to reach a settlement.

Under the settlement agreement, the manufacturer will pay a $100,000 fine and commit to extensive safety and training enhancements. These include hiring a third-party safety consultant and meeting with OSHA officials quarterly to discuss the manufacturer’s safety and health status.
