According to OSHA, the bakery failed to provide personal protective equipment, proper machine guarding on its equipment, and failed to implement emergency action, hazardous energy control, and hearing conservation programs. The bakery was also cited for failure to perform safety inspections and to provide training on its industrial trucks.
