Ashley Furniture formally protests citations issued by OSHA

Posted: Updated:
Ashley Furniture has formally protested citations, issued in January, for unsafe working conditions at its Arcadia Plant. 

OSHA received the official notice from the furniture manufacturer on Tuesday. OSHA proposed fines of more than $1.7 million against the company.

Ashley Furniture is accused of 38 safety violations. OSHA said the plant had more than 1,000 work-related injuries in a 42 month period. 

The next step is mandatory mediation with an administrative law judge, which is expected to take place early during the upcoming summer months.
