Champlain business cited for OSHA violations

(Continued)

CHAMPLAIN —

“We have not had a chance to look at the package, let alone respond to them,” she said Monday afternoon.

A willful violation is one committed with intentional, knowing or voluntary disregard for the law’s requirements or with plain indifference to worker safety and health, the release said. 

A serious violation occurs when there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard about which the employer knew or should have known. 

And an other-than-serious violation is one that has a direct relationship to job safety and health but probably would not cause death or serious physical harm.

Testori has 15 business days from receipt of its citations and proposed penalties to comply, meet informally with OSHA’s area director or contest the findings before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

According to the company website, Testori Interiors expanded to Champlain in 2001 and has 20 employees.
