Dairies Facing OSHA Fines

Two dairies in Ohio and Kansas have been fined nearly $420,000 by OSHA for alleged health and safety violations.  OSHA inspections at the Ohio dairy uncovered 11 critical safety violations and 5 willful violations of federal workplace safety standards that included deficiencies with regard to electrical safety, energy lockout procedures and confined space entry procedures. The Kansas inspection revealed 24 serious violations mostly centered on the company’s process safety management program (PSM), an OSHA requirement for preventing the catastrophic release of  hazardous chemicals.
