Stave Mill faces $400K fine


Missouri Cooperage Company in Lebanon has been cited for amputation, noise and other hazards by the federal government.
A news release from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Friday said it had cited the subsidiary of Independent Stave Company for allegedly exposing employees to amputation, noise, and other safety and health hazards at its spirits and wine barrel-making facility in Lebanon. OSHA said the company faces $413,370 in federal penalties.
OSHA began an inspection in February 2019 after Missouri Cooperage Company LLC reported that an employee suffered a finger amputation when her hand was caught between the belt and pulley system.
