EAST GREENWICH, R.I. (WPRI)- An East Greenwich company is facing tens of thousands of dollars in fines.

Federal Workplace safety inspectors say they found several violations at Provant Health Solutions, which ships clean needles and other medical supplies to clinics nationwide.

OSHA says the company did not do enough to protect workers from being stabbed by contaminated needles. Provant Health Services says it is working with OSHA and takes the violations seriously.
