A Hamilton-based manufacturer has been hit with more than $192,000 in penalties after an inspection uncovered 36 safety and health violations.

The fines were proposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration against NTN-Bower's manufacturing plant.

The company make precision roller-bearings.

In a news release Tuesday, OSHA area director Roberto Sanchez in Birmingham said the violations "reflect management's failure to properly train its employees."

NTN-Bowers has 15 working days to contest the citation and penalties to the agency.
