The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued 24 citations to the owners of the fertilizer plant in West, Texas, that exploded in April. Senator Barbara Boxer reported that the company owning the plant was fined $118,300 by OSHA for “serious violations.” Sen. Boxer said she had to make the announcement disclosing the penalties in Washington because the government shutdown prevented the agency from making an announcement. As we previously reported, the Adair Grain Inc. fertilizer facility in West, Texas, caught fire and exploded on April 17, killing 14 and leaving a crater 93 feet by 10 feet.
