FAA Proposes $70,000 Penalty Against Queen Nail & Beauty Supplies, Inc for Hazmat Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Southern Region, has proposed to
assess a $70,000 civil penalty against
Queen Nail & Beauty Supplies, Inc. of
Philadelphia, PA, for allegedly
violating Department of Transportation
hazardous materials regulations.

The FAA alleges that on June 5, 2001,
Queen Nail & Beauty improperly offered
a fiberboard box containing two 16-
ounce containers of primer and top coat
containing ethyl acetate, a flammable
liquid, to United Parcel Service (UPS)
for transportation by air. Ground
handling employees at the UPS sort
facility in Louisville, KY, discovered
the shipment leaking.

Queen Nail & Beauty offered the
hazardous materials for transportation
when they were not packaged, marked,
classed, described, documented, or in
condition for shipment as required by
regulations. Queen Nail & Beauty also
failed to ensure employees were trained
to properly package and handle
hazardous materials, and did not make
available at all times the required
emergency response information.

Queen Nail & Beauty has 30 days from
receipt of the FAA notice to submit a
reply to the agency. This announcement
is made in accordance with the FAA’s
practice of releasing information to
the public on newly issued enforcement
actions involving penalties of $50,000
or more.
