WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - Federal officials have recommended a $119,000 fine for a Waukesha factory where an employee was severely burned this past summer.  

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration said Pure Power Technologies committed a willful violation of safety rules -- plus seven other serious violations.  

A maintenance supervisor was burned June 25th while working on a 480-volt circuit breaker. OSHA said the employee was not given the proper protection equipment.  

Pure Power is based in South Carolina. It has about 220 workers in Waukesha.

The company has not commented the OSHA citations. It has 15 days to either pay the fine, challenge the citations, or negotiate a reduced penalty.
