Guam - Five months ago the Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited the Guam Shipyard for more than five dozen alleged violations of workplace safety and health standards. Now it appears the company has taken the corrective actions necessary for all of the citations.
U.S. Department of Labor regional director of public affairs Deanne Amaden says the Guam Shipyard has provided confirmation to OSHA on the corrective action.
She adds OSHA's review commission issued orders in October that provide for the final settlement agreement regarding the findings of the inspection which should become final this week.
Meanwhile a total final penalty of $146,000 combined from two separate inspections was imposed against the shipyard and was ordered to be paid in monthly installments.
The agreements called for a partial reduction in the assessed penalties based on Guam Shipyard's assurance that all managers attend OSHA's 30-hour maritime training for managers by August 2014.
