Beef processing plant fined $275K for willful and serious safety violations following worker’s amputation

Jan. 16, 2024
Nebraska Beef was cited for two willful and 11 serious violations.

An OSHA investigation has determined that Nebraska Beef Ltd. failed to protect its workers from numerous safety and health hazards. The investigation began after a worker suffered a serious hand injury last year while trying to help a forklift operator position materials at the facility. The employee’s fingertip became caught in the forklift attachment and an amputation was required three weeks later.
