HOUSTON, TEXAS, U.S. — The Houston North Area office of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Dec. 20, 2016, cited Thomas Moore Feed for eight serious violations and two repeat violations. The agency proposed $91,911 in fines for the Navasota, Texas, U.S.-based animal feed manufacturer, which was cited for similar violations in February 2015.

The most recent violations were uncovered following a follow-up inspection of Thomas Moore Feed on Aug. 24, 2016.

“Thomas Moore Feed cannot continue to expose workers to such serious hazards as unguarded machines and combustible grain dust,” said Joann Figueroa, OSHA’s area director in the Houston North office. “Negligence like this can be fatal, and can lead to serious injuries or worse. Employers must follow OSHA’s standards to protect workers and ensure a safe workplace.”

Thomas Moore Feed specializes in manufacturing animal feed and employs approximately 47 employees. The company has 15 business days from receipt of its citations to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA’s area director, or contest the citations and penalties before the independent Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.
