GENEVA, Neb. (AP) A Geneva-based company has been cited for 10 health and safety violations, including three classified as willful.

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced Wednesday that it has placed the Geneva-based Bioiberica Nebraska in its Severe Violator Enforcement Program. OSHA proposed $101,200 in penalties for the alleged violations, including a failure to protect workers from machine parts during service and maintenance.

OSHA says an investigation found workers were exposed to serious amputation risks and the threat of electrocution, burns, crushing, lacerations or fractured body parts. Willful violations are committed with intentional or voluntary disregard for the law, or with plain indifference to worker safety and health.

OSHA also cited the facility for using hazardous chemicals without proper worker training.

A company phone rang unanswered Wednesday.
