HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) – OSHA is investigating after an employee at the Ford Stamping Plant in Hamburg suffered burns in a workplace accident.

Initial reports described the incident as “an explosion” but OSHA tells News 4 it was an unexpected release of hot hydraulic oil – not an explosion. One worker suffered burns as a result of the accident.

OSHA began investigating the incident on Tuesday and will be working to determine whether any workplace safety standards were violated. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
