TSA cited by OSHA for worker hazards at Logan

Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- The Transportation Security Administration has been cited by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for alleged workplace hazards at Logan International Airport.

OSHA's inspection, which began on Feb. 6, resulted in 14 total notices of unsafe or unhealthy working conditions at the airport in Boston.

The administration claims TSA workers at Logan were exposed to finger crushing or amputation due to unguarded nip points on baggage conveyors in their inspection rooms. OSHA also claims the airport had misused electrical equipment at checkpoints and in inspection rooms, unsecured fire extinguishers, and improper storage of flammable materials.

The TSA has 15 days to comply with the citation, appeal it, or request a conference with OSHA's area director.
