A Kearney manufacturer faces a possible $7,000 fine for an incident this summer when a long-time employee suffered a heat-related illness that required hospitalization.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Eaton Corporation after the 53-year-old worker suffered acute kidney failure when the temperature inside the plant reached 101 degrees on July 11th.
The employee recovered after being hospitalized for more than 24 hours.
Eaton is an automotive parts manufacturer based in Ireland. The Kearney plant employs about 540 workers.
