A Missouri company could face nearly $200,000 in fines after the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited 37 health and safety violations in an investigation that began after a fatal accident that occurred in June of last year. A worker at Resource Management, a suburban St. Louis company, died June 12 in an accident involving a baling machine at the recycling company. Twenty-two of the 37 violations are considered serious, according to OSHA. The agency proposed fines of $195,930. Resource Management had 15 business days to comply, request an informal conference with OSHA, or contest the findings.
