(KCEN) -- The Lowe's in Killeen has been cited by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration for two repeat violations.
The store was cited for exposing workers to electrical and other safety hazards.
Lowe's, located on South W.S. Young Drive, was inspected in September by an agency that enforces resources at places where high injury and illness rates occur.
Some of the violations include failing to illuminate exit signs, protecting exposed lamps from breakage and guarding electrical receptacles with exposed current-carrying parts.
Repeat violations were for failing to mount fire extinguishers and guard exposed live parts on fluorescent lamp holders.
The proposed penalties are $55,000.
