Workers allege safety problems at Ohio auto glass plant

MORAINE, Ohio (AP) — Workers alleging unsafe working conditions at an automotive glass manufacturing plant in southwestern Ohio have filed a complaint with the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

The complaint filed Monday by 11 workers at the Fuyao Glass America Inc. plant in Moraine seeks an expanded investigation at the plant that OSHA cited last month for safety violations.

The complaint says employees working on laminating glass cut themselves and aren’t allowed to use safety gloves. The complaint also alleges fire and safety hazards among other problems.

An official at the 1,400-worker plant told the Dayton Daily News ( ) that Fuyao recently hired an OSHA compliance officer and works daily to ensure safety.

OSHA officials say they will review the complaint and address any allegations not covered by previous inspections.
