OSHA Probing Complaints at Selma Car Parts Plant

Tools

By Alabama News Network

Federal regulators are investigating complaints about safety problems at an automotive parts plant in Selma.

The Selma Times-Journal reports the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is reviewing operations at seat manufacturer Renosol.

A vice president with Renosol parent company Lear Corp. says it's not unusual for the agency to visit manufacturing sites.

The investigation is based partly on a list of employee complaints. A public relations firm representing the workers says about three-quarters of the plant's 90 workers have respiratory problems associated with a chemical used in the manufacturing process.

Employees say exposure to the chemical causes asthma-like symptoms.
