HARTWELL, Ga. (AP) — Federal labor officials say a Georgia company has been cited for eight safety and health violations.

U.S. Department of Labor officials said Tuesday that Quality Industries LLC was cited after a February inspection at its facility in Hartwell. The company manufactures boat seats, electrical equipment coverings and molds for municipal transportation services.

Officials say three repeat violations involve the company exposing workers to fall hazards, fires and explosives and entanglement hazards. The five serious violations include the company failing to post informational signs about hazards, sanitizing protective equipment, ensuring workers wear protective safety goggles and more.

The agency is asking the company to pay $44,000 in fines. Officials say the company has 15 days to comply or contest the citations.

A call to Quality Industries was not immediately returned.
