Jacksonville, FL (WorkersCompensation.com) - The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited Flat Glass Distributors Inc. for exposing employees to unguarded machinery and electrical hazards at the Jacksonville, Florida, fabrication and distribution facility.
