Company Takes Action In Exposing Employees To Lead Violations

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

A Bozeman company cited for exposing their employees to lead is cooperating with officials to make sure all violations are taken care of.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA cited USA Brass Company for ten violations because of lead exposure in the work place.

A meeting held on Wednesday with the company owner, employees, their attorneys and OSHA discussed the improvements the company has made.

Employees are now required to wear respirators and must go through a training on the health effects of lead.

Jeff Funke with OSHA said he is very impressed with the efforts the company has made to correct the violations.

"They have agreed to send in an abatement of information for my review. They have been very corporative. I feel really good about the meeting because employees are protected at this point," said Funke.

The company will still have to pay $45,500 for the cited violations.
