Chocolate company fined by OSHA, owes $84,150

The Tsudis Chocolate Co. has been sought out by the OSHA for violating safety regulations.

The O’Hara Township, Pennsylvania company is being held responsible for a workplace accident that happened last October. An employee received a head wound after a molding machine started without warning, cutting into his scalp. An eight-inch gash resulted, and nerve damage was also uncovered.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration stated that the chocolate factory was responsible for properly locking their equipment, and that the failure to do this directly resulted in the workplace accident. The fines against them total $84,150.
