A troubled New Jersey aluminum foundry will pay a $1 million penalty to settle two long-running federal workplace safety investigations.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has repeatedly cited Aluminum Shapes LLC amid a series of workplace injuries and a fatality at its Delair plant.
It would also impose new safety measures, including retaining a full-time safety professional.
Workplace safety, meanwhile, is not the only recent concern at the plant.
Aluminum Shapes was reportedly the subject of a federal probe into a scheme to evade tariffs in 2016.
And last summer, the company filed for bankruptcy protection, citing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
