CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Officials say a southern New Jersey aluminum services plant has been fined $308,000 from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for dangerous workplace hazards.

NJ.com reports (https://bit.ly/1KSgLp7 ) Aluminum Shapes, LLC was cited on Sept. 21 after an investigation found 44 safety violations at the company’s Pennsauken Township plant.

Officials with the federal agency say 35 of the violations were deemed to be “serious.”

The investigation began on April 15 after the company disclosed to OSHA that an employee had broken his leg at the plant in March during an accident involving a crane.

Inspectors found a collection of damaged electrical equipment at the plant, including malfunctioning control boxes on a crane, in addition to a slew of other safety hazards.

OSHA officials called the violations “completely unacceptable.”
