OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH
APPEALS BOARD

Summary of American Frame Mfg. – Decision after reconsideration

Employer was found to have violated section 3273(b) [permanent roadway maintenance] and section 3661(b) [no operational parking brake]. The board rejected employer’s contention that the evidence did not support the ALJ’s decision. The board also found that employer did not satisfy the requirements for financial hardship relief and that the petition improperly presented new evidence. The board also reclassified the citation to a general violation from a serious violation finding that the division failed to present evidence of a serious violation.
