POUND, WI (WTAQ) - The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is proposing $184,000 in fines against a Pound company for unsafe working conditions.

The federal agency filed 16 violations this week against Northeastern Wisconsin Wood Products.

OSHA says the wood pallet manufacturer improperly exposed workers to amputation hazards.
