JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Federal officials recommend almost $52,000 in fines against a Janesville plant that puts powder-coating on metal parts.  

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited the firm of Power Coatings for 14 serious safety violations.  

OSHA said it found the violations when it inspected the plant last December. Officials said workers were exposed to toxic chemical hazards that can be avoided with respiratory protections, protective equipment, and proper training.  

Power Coatings was given 15 days to either pay the fines, challenge them, or seek a settlement conference for a possible lower penalty.
