Court ruling could halt Mar-Jac plant inspection
OSHA seeks warrant to review poultry plant after worker injury
Mar-Jac poultry plant at 1020 Aviation Boulevard in Gainesville has been battling an OSHA warrant for potential worker-safety violations.
A local magistrate judge has recommended a warrant be quashed to inspect the Mar-Jac poultry plant in Gainesville for potential worker-safety violations. The recommendation calls into question the legal authority of a new oversight program of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. “We have an opportunity to file objections before the district judge makes a final decision,” Michael D’Aquino, an OSHA spokesman based in Atlanta, said.
