OSHA aware of incidents and workplace accident at Ultium Cells
OSHA is aware of several incidents of concern that have happened at the new Ultium Cells Battery plant in Lordstown.
People who have loved ones working inside are worried and want OSHA to investigate safety concerns after two more people were taken to a hospital from the plant today.
Public records from 911 dispatch show this morning a 19 year old man was transported from Ultium Cells to a hospital after an electrical shock, and is in stable condition.
And another worker was transported to a hospital after having complaints related to possible chemical exposure over the weekend at the plant.
During a scheduled production shift in the plant, employees expressed concern of a possible airborne chemical exposure. Air samples were taken in the area of concern with a certified meter, and all tests were at safe levels. No chemical exposure occurred at our facility. The decision to transport employees to outside care was at the discretion of the Emergency Medical Service (EMS). There are no employees being treated for work related injuries from the weekend concern.
