Violation by Violation – Training at Tribe Mediterranean Foods

It looks like Tribe may be working towards a quick settlement in their recent citations. The citation is a good example of what can happen with Willful citations: Seven employees weren’t trained properly for LO/TO and each was cited as a separate Willful citation. Initially that was nearly $500,000 – the informal settlement has brought it closer to $400,000.

There are many, many refrigeration facilities out there who are ripe for this type of citation for Operator Training.

I work for an Ammonia training school and am a bit amazed how many students came in due to recent citations. It would be nice if businesses started looking at training as a cost avoidance strategy rather than as part of an abatement strategy.
