The Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced the alleged violations by Garden State Fireworks on Wednesday. Eleven of them were considered serious, meaning there’s substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard about which the employer knew or should have known.

Among the alleged violations are failures to keep records showing employee training and compile safety information on the dangers of highly hazardous chemicals, technology and equipment.

The OSHA inspection at the firm’s Millington facility started in May. Once the company receives the citations, it has 15 business days to comply or contest them.

A company spokesman was not available for comment Wednesday.
