J.E. Adams Industries, a Cedar Rapids company, has been cited by the state under the Iowa Occupational and Safety Health Act. The company makes parts for self-service car washes, according to KCRG.
An accident occurred on May 4, and a man, 43, lost part of his hand on the job. According to KCRG, the company "allegedly failed to provide point of operation guards for a machine that
a 43-year-old man was operating when he was injured." The fine for a violation of this magnitude is $2,500. It also requires that the company install the point of operation guards by the 23rd of August.
