U.P. Fish Hatchery Cited For Several OSHA Violations

An Upper Peninsula fish hatchery run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is in trouble with the feds.

Rhonda Burke, a spokeswoman for the Occupational Safety Health Administration, says an inspection earlier this month turned up 11 serious violations and two minor ones.

She says the Chippewa County hatchery, which employs 13 people and produces trout to stock the Great Lakes, had confined spaces that weren’t safe and some machines didn’t have guards exposing employees to moving machine parts.

The Fish and Wildlife Service won’t be fined by OSHA but does have to fix the problems.
