OSHA Proposes $110,000 Fine for Savannah Plant

July 17, 2008

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration wants the operators of a Savannah plant to pay a stiff fine.

OSHA has proposed a $110,000 penalty for CITGO Asphalt Refining Co.

The agency said the company was cited for 25 safety violations that included workers who were not properly trained when working around combustible liquids, inadequate emergency response plans and failing to inform contractors of known hazards.

OSHA cited CITGO for similar violations in January and said the company was responsible for correcting the violations.

CITGO has 15 days to contest the fines.
