OSHA has proposed nearly $90,000 in penalties after finding East Orange, N.J.-based County Concrete Corp. exposed workers tasked with mixer cleaning to airborne silica. The agency issued citations for one repeat and two failure-to-abate violations on the heels of a July 2016 inspection, conducted as a follow up to settlement of 2013 citations. The settlement spanned 18 safety and health violations and $153,900 in assessed penalties.
