OSHA Proposes Big Fine in Deadly Toledo-Area Refinery Blast

OREGON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing a significant fine for BP in connection with that explosion last September that killed two brothers who were employed at the Toledo-area refinery.

OSHA proposed $156,000 in fines for violating safety procedures and failing to adequately train workers.

A flammable vapor cloud formed after workers took incorrect action to solve another problem at the Oregon plant.

That cloud ignited in an explosion, killing Ben and Max Morrissey.
