SPRINGBROOK, WI (WTAQ) - A lumber company in northwest Wisconsin faces up to $145,000 in fines for safety hazards in the workplace.

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued 17 citations to Buchman Lumber of Washburn County. The agency said it inspected the Springbrook facility after getting a complaint.

Officials said they found four willful violations and 13 serious violations for things like excessive noise, and not providing adequate machine safeguards to avoid hazards for amputation.

OSHA says Bachman Lumber has 15 days to decide whether to pay the proposed fine, challenge the violations, or seek a settlement conference with the agency.
