CHINA GROVE, NC (WBTV) -
The state has fined Daimler Trucks for safety violations following a forklift accident last summer.
The Labor Department cited Daimler for one alleged serious violation of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of North Carolina with a total penalty of $2,750.
Civil penalties for OSH violations are included in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of North Carolina in the General Statutes. The maximum penalty for each serious violation is $7,000.
The General Statutes say that the Labor Department has to take into consideration various factors such as the size of the business, the good faith and cooperation of the employer, and the history of previous violations.
By law, the civil money penalties collected by the N.C. Department of Labor are not the receipts of the department, but rather must be remitted to the Civil Penalty and Forfeiture Fund, which then distributes the monies to the public school systems. Fines are issued to penalize the offending employer but also to get the attention of other employers with similar work environments.
The company paid the penalty Dec. 6.
The accident occurred on July 19 around 4:30 at the truck plant.
