Oct. 6 — A family-owned steel tin manufacturer in Parsippany, N.J., will meet with federal officials Oct. 7 to explain why its can-clanging should not ring up a $104,220 noise penalty.
Allstate Can Corp. exposed workers to noise levels of 82.4 percent of permissible daily exposure and then failed to provide annual hearing tests for all employees, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration alleges in a citation dated Sept. 16.
The company failed to retain workers who suffered hearing loss, did not give them proper hearing protection and did not refer them for medical exams when needed, the citation said.
The company scheduled an informal conference with OSHA Oct. 7 in response to the citation, agency spokeswoman Joanna Hawkins told Bloomberg BNA in an Oct. 6 e-mail.
The company has until Oct. 7 to contest the citation. Allstate Can Corp. didn’t respond to a phone message seeking comment.
