GREAT FALLS - The Walmart store in Great Falls is facing thousands of dollars in fines for safety violations.
The federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) says the Great Falls supercenter was inspected back in January.
OSHA reports that it found employees working with a bread slicer were exposed to amputation hazards.
The store was cited for the same issue back in 2009.
The other problem is with a lack of proper facilities for people working near a battery charging station.
OSHA says the store needs to ensure employees can flush or drench their eyes and body in case of an emergency.
The Great Falls store has not been cited for this problem before, but since other Walmart stores have, it's considered a repeat violation.
The store faces a $25,000 fine for each violation.
Our calls to the store and manager have not been returned.
