Worker Killed at Alcoa Plant in Iowa

In July, an Alcoa worker was killed at a plant in Riverdale, Iowa, while operating a piece of equipment. According to an article on KWQC.com, the company now faces fines of over $38,000 as a result of serious violations found to be in connection with the accident.

OSHA investigated the accident and issued six serious safety violations. The violations included failing to prevent the movement of equipment, failure to inspect equipment and provide training.

A spokesman for the company said Alcoa will address the issues and will take correction action.
