The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited the 402nd Maintenance Wing, a unit based at Robins Air Force Base, with 13 safety violations Thursday.
The citations are related to Building 169, where the unit performs maintenance work on F-15, C-5, C-17 and C-130 aircraft.
OSHA officials met with 402nd Maintenance Wing commanders at Robins on Thursday to discuss their findings.
A news release from the Robins public affairs office acknowledged that OSHA found “chromium, lead and other contaminants resulting from procedural, equipment and housecleaning issues” during the course of their investigation.

“We will continue to implement safety and environmental improvements in the workplace and to that end, we will expeditiously address these findings,” said Greg Stanley, the wing’s vice director, in the news release.
The 402nd Maintenance Wing was alerted last week of a negative safety review.
OSHA investigators had been looking at base operations for the past 14 months, a Robins spokesman said last week.
About 200 Robins employees work in Building 169.
