URBANDALE — A federal safety agency has cited the U.S. Postal Service distribution center in Urbandale for one new and two repeated safety violations.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration said in a news release Monday that the citations follow an October 2015 OSHA investigation of a complaint alleging forklift operators were handling unstable loads and driving forward with no clear path of visibility.

OSHA has proposed $88,000 in penalties.

OSHA spokesman Scott Allen said no accidents or injuries directly resulted from incidents cited in the citation. A regional post office safety administrator didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
