An auto parts distributor in Norcross is facing fines from federal officials for several safety violations, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced Tuesday.

Parts Authority has been accused of, among other things, not securing materials stacked in a storage area and allowing lead to accumulate in various places in a battery recharging area. Federal officials also said employees were exposed to eye and skin burns while working with corrosive chemicals and cleaning up acid spills from damaged batteries, and that the company did not provide facilities where employees could wash off chemicals that spilled on their bodies.
